• Characteristics
  • Raised in 2000 by plant breeder David Tristram (whose father gave the first 'Potter's Wheel' to Washfield Nursery), Helleborus 'Walberton's Rosemary' is pink-flowered, extremely floriferous, and seems to be intermediate between its parents in many other characteristics. (wikipedia.org)
  • petals
  • They have five large green oval sepals with pointed tips, and seven to twelve much smaller petals. (wikipedia.org)
  • The tips of the petals may be flushed pink or green, and there is a prominent central boss of yellow. (wikipedia.org)
  • The flowers bloom as early as January through April, and because the color is provided by sepals that do not fall off as petals do, the show will continue on for several months as the flowers slowly fade to green. (cumberlink.com)
  • Aphids will start their feeding from the outside the flowers, beginning at the leaves and then moving towards the flower petals of the hellebore. (wikipedia.org)
  • flowers
  • they are said to be the best of all hellebores for cut flowers. (wikipedia.org)
  • The whitish-green aphids are about 2-4mm long and form dense colonies on hellebores, coating them with a honeydew that can lead to the growth of sooty mold on the leaves and flowers of the hellebore. (wikipedia.org)
  • The weather today turned cold and misty, so many of the small early bloomers called it a day and folded up their flowers, but the hepaticas (liverworts) were quite nonchalant about the chilliness. (blogspot.com)
  • Sibthorpii, with its crisp, light green small leaves, and its much more modest and complementary flowers, escapes that hothouse look. (blogspot.com)
  • early
  • Especially valued for their winter and early spring flowering period, hellebores provide color in the landscape at a time when there virtually is none. (poconorecord.com)
  • seeds
  • As with hellebores some others in the family, they do not like to be moved once established and seeds that are not planted soon after harvesting should be stored moist-packed in vermiculite to avoid dormancy and viability issues. (wikipedia.org)
  • colors
  • Pine Knot Best Strain' is a selection of unbloomed seedlings in mixed colors of the best single and semi-double hybrid hellebores which have been developed by Judith and Dick Tyler of Pine Knot Farms in Clarksville, Virginia. (missouribotanicalgarden.org)
  • Colors range from deep purples and blues, through reds and pinks to yellow, white and green. (poconorecord.com)
  • sepals
  • They are distinguishable by having one of the five petaloid sepals (the posterior one), called the galea, in the form of a cylindrical helmet, hence the English name monkshood. (wikipedia.org)
  • known
  • Celosia cristata is a member of the Amaranthaceae family, and is commonly known as cockscomb, since the flower looks like the head on a rooster (cock). (blogspot.com)
  • Once
  • Once established, hellebores are durable and drought-tolerant, although they will benefit from an occasional watering during the hottest, driest summer weather. (cumberlink.com)
