Here in the Pacific Northwest the blooming of hellebores is a favorite late winter reminder that spring is right around the corner. Hellebores are perennial and largely evergreen. Their flowers provide color and interest in the shade garden when other plants are dormant.

Hellebore’s most impressive feature is their five-petal bowl-shaped flowers which appear from late winter into spring in colors as diverse as apricot, yellow, green, silver-blue, slate, dusky pink, maroon and white. Some varieties feature double-petalled flowers, giving them a nostalgic rose-like quality.

Kicking off Saturday morning is a creative workshop with Seattle artist, Kate Alarcón. Pre-register and create three botanically correct crepe paper hellebore blossoms. Next, enjoy a discussion by Keynote Speaker and local Hellebore expert, Katie Miller, from Skagit Gardens to learn why there is no longer a need to wait for spring to enjoy flowers.

Our Hellebore offerings will pack our Propagation house to the brim with a beautiful display through the weekend of exciting new varieties, such as ‘Jesko’ and ‘Marlon’ along with tried and true favorites like ‘Anna’s Red’. Enjoy a lovely weekend discovering varieties to keep your garden blooming throughout winter!
