We had a first frost this weekend. The cold temperatures knocked out most of my fall containers with plants like Coleus and Begonias. The plants went to the compost and I cleaned up the front porch for late fall.
I usually do arrangements with three to four types of plants per container. But this year I thought I would try just one type of plant per container and instead to group the containers. It turned out really nice and clean!
I’ve been looking for a plant to match my newly planted Heucherellas. To get some inspiration I made a visit to the garden. I didn’t have to look long before I found the Helleborus Orientalis ’Viv. Victoria’. What a beautiful perennial! It matched the Heucherella perfectly with the purple and orange/yellow colors.
The Helleborus and the Heucherella are both evergreen. They will keep their foliage all year-round. They will bring winter interest to the garden when all other plants are sleeping.
Helleborus Orientalis ’Viv. Victoria’ is a perennial. It grows 10-15 inches (25-40 cm) tall and preferens half shade.
The amazing thing with Hellaborus is that they bloom in the winter for 3-4 months!
This variety will bloom sometime between September and April. It will keep blooming for 3-4 months!
