Hellebores are some of our most favourite perennials for shady areas and we use them wherever possible. Terra Nova Nurseries Inc. is offering, for the first time this year, a collection of very large, double flowered hellebores developed by Marietta O’Byrne (Northwest Garden Nursery). This stunning selection of plants is known as the Winter Jewel ™ Series and they are gorgeous! Our choice for this week’s Plant of the Week is ‘Jade Tiger’.
