Travel to Seattle, Washington with Dave to enjoy the rich planting combinations of Bellevue Botanical Garden with Garden Director, Nancy Kartes. The garden boasts several key features including the massive Northwest Perennial Alliance borders and the Water-Wise Garden. Bellevue Botanical Garden is unique for the partnerships it has developed with local groups that help curate, plant, and care for the distinct areas of its landscape.
Next, discover the Christmas Rose as Dave visits the winter woods of West Virginia to see thousands of Hellebores, traditionally called “Christmas Rose” because of their winter bloom time. Hellebores are long lasting perennials which bloom in white, green, pink, purple, black, or yellow. They grow best in partial shade, like under the canopy of forest trees or tall shrubs.
