All the hellebores in this catalogue are sold out.  If you live locally and wish to receive an announcement of the 2023 Hellebore Catalogue, please send your full name, mailing address, and cell number to carolyn@carolynsshadegardens.com.
.
Spring has arrived, the weather is beautiful, and hellebores are blooming, so it’s time for our annual Hellebore Catalogue.  Local customers can pre-order hellebores from the large selection below, ensuring the widest choice and availability.  This is the best selection of hellebores we have ever offered, and each plant is individually chosen by us to ensure its superior quality.  We will not be hosting our annual hellebore open house, so ordering from the catalogue is your only chance to purchase hellebores.  Please read the pickup and order information carefully.
.
All hellebores offered are mature, blooming-size plants in gallon pots (6 1/2″ x 7″).  The Frostkiss® and Christmas rose hellebores are in bloom, the rest will bloom next spring.  All the hellebores are $29.
.
Pickup Details:  All orders must be picked up on Friday, April 8, or Saturday, April 9, at a time assigned alphabetically by us. Unfortunately, specific time requests cannot be accommodated. If you can’t make it on either day, you are welcome to send a relative or friend to get the plants for you, but alternate dates and times will not be available. The plants you pick up can be put in the ground immediately or stay in their pots until you are ready to plant them.  When you pick up your plants you will be able to tour the garden and see all our hellebores in bloom.
.
How to Order (sorry no mail order): Minimum order 3 hellebores.  Hellebore supply is limited so please check the catalogue before ordering to make sure the variety you want is not marked sold out.  Please send an email to carolyn@carolynsshadegardens.com or reply to this email with the plant names, quantities, your name, cell number, and preferred pickup day, Friday, April 8, or Saturday, April 9 (please do not specify a time). We will send you an acknowledgment of your order, usually within 24 hours.   If you don’t get an acknowledgment, it means we didn’t receive your order.  Payment for your plants is by cash or check at pick up, but please consider your order a noncancellable commitment as we will not be able to resell your hellebores.  Orders must be received by Sunday, April 3.
.
Cultural Information:  Hellebores are the dream plant: their leaves are evergreen, their flowers are large and striking, they come in a wide range of beautiful and unusual colors, they bloom in winter, their form is elegant, and deer don’t touch them.  Your hellebores can be planted immediately (or wait in their pots until you are ready to plant) anywhere from almost full sun to almost full shade as long as they are well drained.  They are not picky about soil, but we always add compost when we plant.  They require no fertilization and no supplemental water once they are established.
