Pretty hellebores

8 September 2011

Hellebores are one of my new favorite flowers. (They’re also known as the Christmas rose.) They’re one of the few winter and early spring blooming plants, which unfortunately means I probably won’t be able to get them for our wedding in September — but that’s great news for cold weather brides! Here’s what these pretty flowers look like:

They come in lots of white, pink, green, and purple shades, and can be solid or speckled. Here are a few of my favorite arrangements with hellebores:

How beautiful! I love the deep wine colored one, and the white ones are perfect for our January wedding. Thanks for the tip!
