The darker center of this hellebore contrasts with the sunny petals and makes them stand out even more. That light, cheery color will be an especially lovely sight at the tail end of winter, brightening up a shady border when nothing else is in bloom yet. Hellebores are native to woodlands, growing in the wild around the edge of tree lines. California Dreamin', with lovely evergreen foliage, will remain an asset under trees in your garden through the season. The blooms can also be used as cut flowers, their nodding, elegant form creates the most sophisticated bouquet. Helleborus 'California Dreamin'
