Update - Aubergine Flowers Too
Reviewed By: Veloria (Brooklyn, ny)
In the 4th year Aubergine flowers started to show. Not just the green ones. Despite the leaves constantly having holes from the voracious slugs and snails in my garden, the plants have continued to grow. The original plants grew to a nice size. But the self sown seedlings never really took off so instead I was able to divide each plant. It's been 6 months and the divisions have taken nicely. It's February now and I'm seeing buds ready to bloom. Wish there were more buds, but it is a shade garden after all!

Green flowers in 2nd year
Reviewed By: Veloria (Brooklyn, NY)
The plants took a couple years to thrive and flower so I was rather disappointed when the "mix" turned out to be all green. But I am enjoying the perennials in my year round shade. Make sure to remove any browning leaves. This being the 3rd year, they have begun to self sow little seedlings.

They work for me
Reviewed By: Donna Putney (Honea Path, SC)
I put helleborus in urns in deep shade under an east-facing patio, and they do well. Last year's foilage dies off as the new leaves come, so they take a little tiding each spring. The plants need to be a few years old to start blooming, but the flowers are impressive, and they bloom every year after that. Given good soil and conditions, the plants get bigger every year, and last for years and years.

Have a bunch from 6
Reviewed By: G. Cooper (Birmingham, AL)
My original order was for six about 4 years ago. Now there are hundreds. Year before last I collected all the seed pods from the spent flowers and kept them in a bucket for a while. I shelled them like peas and threw them out and into the woods. Looks great in the winter. Only one problem. The leaves on bottom turn black. For this year, I cut all of them down for 2008 and they are coming back beautifully.

I love them but...
Reviewed By: Mullins (Suffolk, VA)
I love these plants. Unfortunately, they don't do too well in my area. I originally purchased four plants. After five years, two are alive. I have seen them bloom once so far. You don't have to worry about expanding space for them to grow. All the ones I have owned, grow for 2 years then stay around the same size. Very attractive foliage and the blooms are a nice surprise when they bloom.
