Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Leehallfae On Apr 13, 2009, Leehallfae from Seattle, WA wrote:

Corsican Hellebore is one of the hardiest for this area, the Pacific Northwest. Typically, the height is about 3 feet and the width five feet, with lots and lots of flowers, and they do very well in this climate, where the weather is erratic.
