Sometimes nature does all the work – this beautiful, double white hellebore was a chance find in a Tasmanian garden, albeit the garden of the noted plantswoman who has given her name to this snowy Lenten Rose. Like all hellebores, give it deep, rich soil, in semi-shade and reliable year-round moisture and enjoy… a Tasmanian Angel, to be sure.

I think I will have to add a couple of these to the Penny’s Pink I bought last week. Counselling may be required before the season is out…
