The purple Hellebores are in bud as well. Who knows what these will look like , all selfset from previous years.
I do tend to let the plants that fall from bird food grow for a while and sometimes this happens.
We have our little inside greenhouse put together ready for the winter.
All through the summer I take off dead heads to keep the flowers coming, but now that stops as I want to collect the seed heads to grow for next year or to let the plants self set depending on where they are. I do dead head the odd plant to make sure that resources are still available for bees though.
