Cornus Officinalis and Hellebores in Early April


  1. Wonderful photographs, I see you have no problems with the buxus!


  2. Hi Sigrun,
    Thanks for stopping by. Yes, I have a thing for boxwood and hellebores. They both look great and contribute to the garden for a long time in the year.

  3. Hi Michael, Happy hellebores and so beautifully presented. So difficult to get people to do the leaf removal around here, but it really does make them sing out and makes such sound cultural sense. But really taken with the box clusters and the gawky central shrub. What is that? Too far away to tell. More pics and closer please! Hope you are well. Have a happy easter!

  4. Hi Robert,
    I agree about removing the hellebore leaves. I actually like doing it on a sunny early spring day when you want to get out in the garden and there isn't anything else to do. The first picture is Cornus officinalis underplanted with glory in the snow in a box and native American pachysandra bed.
