🌹 Lenten rose (Helleborus x hybridus) seedlings are grown by local Pacific Northwest breeders. Hellebores are revered by seasoned gardeners for their long bloom time, reliability, evergreen foliage and tolerance of a wide variety of light and soil conditions. With flower colors ranging from cream to near-black, single and double forms, speckled patterns and veining, the diversity of blooms is astonishing. 🌹 📸:@pnwpetalpixels
🌸 Lupines are perennials, however they are in the class of short-lived perennials. They put all their energy into those magnificent flower stalks and wear themselves out in the effort. Lupines live in the range of two to five years.
🌸If you want to keep lupines blooming in your garden, you have two choices. If you watch their spots in spring and nothing appears by late May, you can simply buy new plants. The ones for sale in local nurseries should be plants starting their second year and should bloom this summer.
