Hellebores Today: What's New and Exciting?
Dick and Judith Knott Tyler have owned and operated Pine Knot Farms in Clarksville, VA since 1982. They became focused on the genus Helleborus and began breeding the plants. Each winter the Tylers travel around the world to the UK, Europe and The Balkans in search of new hellebores to add to their collection which includes all the species and innumerable hybrids. Their breeding work with the double forms has sparked national interest.
Judith is the author, with C. Coleston Burrell, Hellebores: A Comprehensive Guide which features many of Dick's remarkable photographs. Dick is responsible for all the slides and photographs used for talks, website, and publications.
The Tylers are former co-curators of the Garden of Winter Delights at the J.C. Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh NC. Their gardens at Pine Knot Farms have been featured in Southern Living, Virginia Gardener, and Martha Stewart Living among other publications, and on Martha Stewart’s TV show. We will have some select hellebores for sale after the lecture.
