I had never picked my hellebores for an arrangement until today. I guess I never thought of them as a great flower for arrangements because their heads are always droopy and you never get to see the inside of the flower. But boy was I wrong! I totally love them as cut flowers! Some of them still droop but they are fairly easy to manipulate and if you really feel the need you could always wire a head or two.
When I went to post these photos I realized what a difference the light makes. I took the above photo today which was overcast and the below photos yesterday when it was sunny. I like the joyous feeling the sun gives to those photos but I definitely prefer the no-shadow light of the above photo. Either way I am super happy to have discovered these as cut flowers because I have a ton of them in my yard and they appear to be spreading without my doing anything to them!
