Oh dear! A cold night with sub-zero temperatures had left the Hellebores looking miserable, they had been flattened by the chilly night air.
Despite the fact that I'd seen this happen before, I was not exactly confident that would recover, and I was relieved to see them regain their posture as the air warmed in the morning sun.
Part of my concern was that they might not regain their good looks in time for my Hellebore Sale on the weekend after next (see details in sidebar), but within hours they were resurrected completely.
The weather forecast predicts warmer weather for the next two weeks, so they should be unaffected by further sub-zero temperatures.
Helleborus 'Pink Frost' got a frosty start to the day.
H. 'Pink Frost' fully recovered as the temperature rose.
