Hellebores are a beautiful early bloomer from February to mid May. Tolerant of a wide range of growing conditions, hellebores perform best when sited in partial shade in rich, moist, but well-draining soil. Hellebores are quite easy to grow, and since they are perennials, will continue to bloom for a number of years.
The fabulous foliage of Rex begonias offers a large range of colors, shapes, and textures. The flowers are insignificant, but with leaves like these, who cares? Rex begonias headline the show for months on end in any shade garden, especially when grown in containers.
While Calibrachoa million bells may be a fairly new species, this dazzling little plant is a must-have in the garden. Its name comes from the fact that it features hundreds of small, bell-like flowers that resemble miniature petunias. Its trailing habit makes it perfect for use in hanging baskets, containers or as a small area ground cover.
The stunning Heuchera foliage of these fast-growing, deer- and pest-resistant perennials is so multi-colored they will stand out anywhere! With large, heart-shaped or rounded leaves, the striking colors and variegation patterns beautifully accent the clusters of late-spring, hummingbird-attracting, vase-perfect, flower spikes!
