Hellebores are often utilized as the season's first flowers, because they can bloom right through the snow. The Frostkiss® series blooms a little late for hellebores, closer to spring than to Christmas, and make a lovely transition from sleepy winter into the big spring show. However, we also really like these varieties for containers and bouquets—their flowers are especially showy, even compared to other hellebores. This flower form is a lot larger than average, and it doesn't nod as deeply. The leaves are stunning too—not clear green but marbled with silver and pink. These are tough, sturdy plants with rarely any disease concerns, especially if you grow them with good airflow. Helleborus various
