I’ve seen silver birches underplanted with all kinds of things – snowdrops, anemones, cyclamen, bluebells etc – but never hellebores for some reason. The combination works so well – the pristine white of the petals complements the dazzling trunks of the small grove of Betula utilis ‘Jacquemontii’ trees perfectly.

This is a clever bit of planting. The hellebores will flower for a while yet, and will then give way to foxgloves. And that’s it. Simple, but very effective.

  1. Gorgeous combo. I’m off to buy a Silver Birch to go with my hellebores right now!
