Hellebore Just when you think winter is never going to end, the spirit-lifting flowers of hellebore burst into bloom.

It has pretty, blue-green, pea-like foliage that looks terrific even when the plants are not in bloom. Baptisia requires a sunny spot and grows 3 to 4 feet tall. Grows in Zones 3-8.
