This mid-winter flower is seductively alluring throughout the dreariest months of the year. Hellebores start flowering as early as February and though, to my knowledge, breeders are still in pursuit of a pure-white hellebore, they can be found in a wide range of solid colors (including pink, mauve, burgundy, yellow, green and even black ) as well as being beautifully speckled, bi-colored, or veined. I am unwaveringly charmed by these perennials and see enormous potential when it comes to including them in wedding arrangements. Their slightly downturned, buttercup-like blooms look gorgeous as accent flowers in an organically arranged bouquet, and you can also float the cut blooms in a shallow bowl of water, making for an unusual centerpiece.
