A mere 10 years ago, hellebores were considered connoisseurs' plants — subdued in coloration, hard to find, and the subject of much snobbery. Today, however, they are among the hottest perennials, thanks to their early bloom, long-lasting flowers, shade tolerance, handsome foliage, and the profusion of new colors and forms that have recently become available. Authors Cole Burrell and Judith Tyler have produced what is arguably the definitive book on this genus, packed with up-to-the-minute, comprehensive information on growing, maintenance, design, hybridization and selection, and trouble-shooting. This lavishly illustrated volume will interest hellebore lovers at every level of interest.

I was expecting something thinner and more of a non-professional publication, like a leaflet. I was wrong! This book is amazing. Photographs, history, breeding information, species information, all in a well-written and beautiful format. It's about an inch thick with the cover. I read parts and skimmed parts and loved every minute of it.
