Although the true roses are ending, the winter roses (Helleborus) are starting to come out. About 4-5 days ago, the first of 'Jacob' appeared. I liked it so much that I bought a couple more. This is the first plant I bought, and it began blooming about this time last year.
'Jacob' 2 has a few flowers opening. 'Jacob' 3 had a battle with spider mites this summer, and although it survived, it is not blooming.
'Nell Lewis' is a few years old now, and these are the first flowers on it.
I don't have any of the new flashy colors in Hellebores. The original white are still my favorite.
