Design IdeasHellebores are excellent off season interest for gardens. They adapt to use as groundcover and woodland garden floor where they are perfectly adapted to humusy soils and filtered shade. Adds interest to wild gardens that need accent plants with unique character. Exquisite blooms are ideal along pathways and walks and around gateways where they are appreciated at close range. Spot into mixed borders or apply in the new jewel box garden style with exotic succulents and high color perennials.
