Their leaves are similar in size but different in texture, and they like the same conditions. In my rooty patch, however, hostas do best in pots parked near the hellebores, rather than planted in the ground. In small gardens, Corsican hellebores may be used like small shrubs, underplanted with bulbs and a groundcover such as plumbago Ceratostigma plumbaginoides , which has electric-blue flowers in late summer.

I prefer it to periwinkle, which is evergreen and overly vigorous.

Hellebore & Rue: Tales of Queer Women and Magic

Something to consider — Corsican hellebore plants can exude a distinctly skunky aroma, especially in warm weather. If you grow them, be prepared for questions about pot smoking. Corsican Hellebore, variegated hosta in pot , and hardy cyclamen, Fall I used to garden in a place with real winters. The ground froze and the garden was sealed under a foot or more of snow for several months. It was closed for the season.

There was no question of any garden work during those months. The only thing to do was look at seed and plant catalogues and dream. Here, winter is just a pause, not a shutdown.

The only snow is on distant mountain peaks and the grass is green and wet. But things are blooming — in January, one of the longest, coldest, darkest months of the year. First among them was a Chinese witch hazel Hamamelis mollis. Unfortunately, the plant I ended up with, and possibly its location in dry sandy soil, shaded by maples and an ailanthus much of the summer when the buds would be forming has resulted in almost no bloom.

Very disappointing. There have been only three years out of those twenty when it has produced any flowers at all. Maybe last summer was perfect in some way. In any case, the little tree is in full bloom right now — not spectacularly, compared to better plants in happier situations, but better than no bloom at all.

Chinese Witch Hazel. There is a nice fragrance too, when there are enough flowers. The winter honeysuckle Lonicera fragrantissima is also blooming well. They quite often die inexplicably, so a good deal of pruning is needed to keep the plant looking tidy. The flowers are by no means showy, but the fragrance, especially in the evening, is something special — a lemony sweetness. Winter Honeysuckle. Winter Honeysuckle Shrub.

Another January-blooming plant that sends out an alluring fragrance at night is really a weed — the spurge laurel, Daphne laureola. I have a few of them around the edges of the garden, and as long as I pull up the dozens of seedlings they produce, I can enjoy the haunting perfume on damp winter evenings.

Spurge laurel Daphne laureola. The foliage is messy, but the flowers are improbably gorgeous in January. Algerian iris Iris unguicularis. The Corsican hellebores are among the winter-blooming stalwarts in this garden, totally reliable, as are snowdrops. Hellebore and Snowdrops. My scraggly rosemary plant, which has put up with shade for twenty years of summers, blooms defiantly in January. I guess the absence of leaves on the maples in autumn enables it to set buds. The flowers are little pale blue things that would go unnoticed in summer.

Rosemary in bloom. And finally, another weedy plant with fragrant flowers — the modest violet. Sweet Violets. Manic, obsessed, driven to story - all story.

Nicholas Adams came back to Falledge and it starts out saying that he hates the town and everything about it so I knew right away there was some history to be learned.

We also meet Julianna Paige who is surprised to see Nick back in town and she has some pain she's dealing with. They meet at Justina's grave, Julianna's twin sister who died ten years ago. Their conversation doesn't go well and Nick tells her he's leaving town again. While leaving, he sees someone This is a book I really enjoyed! While leaving, he sees someone sneak into the laboratory and chases after him. At the end of the chase, he gets seriously injured and dies. He wakes up, expecting to see Justina the twin who died but instead meets Gavina, the witch who brought him back from the dead.

He soon learns that he's now a super man of sorts due to the black hellebore he had in his pocket while he was being brought back to life. His new strength comes in handy as he helps Julianna, who is now in law enforcement, to figure out who broke into the lab and what happened to him. They need to work together but is that such a good idea?

I enjoyed all the mystery surrounding Nick and Julianna. They each had their secrets and their reasons for keeping them from each other. They also learn that Justina had a secretive side and through the course of the book, they are able to learn the truth about her death. They are each in pain and find it difficult to completely trust the other one. I liked watching their relationship progress. The superhero aspect seemed a little over the top to me at times but I still enjoyed it.

The supervillain named Skull Crusher was creepy and scary and I felt myself cheering the good guys on to figure out a way to defeat him. There were some good interactions with him and he's someone I would definitely never want to meet. There are also some other good interactions with Gavina, the witch, and Ginny, the grandmotherly town gossip who convinces Nick to stay with her while he's in town. This is a clean read with some mild swearing and violence. The ending wasn't a cliffhanger but hinted at much more to come and I'm looking forward to reading more about the Heroes of Falledge!

Mel's Shelves Oct 22, A. O'Connor added it Shelves: new-adult.

While I'm not sure I'll pick up the genre as a whole, I will definitely pick up the next in Nicole Zoltack's Heroes of Falledge series. They all felt real to me--something that surprised me for a comic book, super powered, paranormal romance mix. It was also a quick read. In my time-crunched life, it's refreshing to pick up a novel that's not heavy and deep, yet is still entertaining and interesting. Things I'm not sure about: I'm too unfamiliar with the genre to really understand the nuances of it and to fully appreciate all the action and subtleties.

You will identify with Nick or Julianna, according to your taste, and I guarantee that if you can accept the existence of a witch and magic you will enjoy the experience of following their adventure. Feb 23, Sara Oxton rated it it was amazing. We met Nicholas Adams, he went from foster home to foster home when he was a kid, until he landed in Falledge.

Where he met the Perrys they were good people to him, they looked after him well, and he met his first proper real friends, Justina and Julianna Paige a set of sisters that would forever be intertwined with his life, sadly not always in a positive way. Once a year for the past decade Nicolas has been visiting Falledge, he has kept to the shadows, not wanting to see anyone, apart from the one he comes to see. Justina and Nicolas were the perfect couple when they were younger, until she died and Nicolas ran away from the area. He returns every year to place a Hellebore flower on her grave site.

Never has he had any problems, until this fateful year when he is leaving town he sees someone sneaking into a laboratory and chases after them to try to help. Only problem is he ends up dead, and brought back by a witch, who was only trying to help. As Nicholas he was never able to move on, but maybe as the Black Hellebore he will be able to settle down and possibly find love again.

Only time will tell. Oct 17, Christine Rains rated it really liked it. Nicholas Adams hasn't been at peace since his girlfriend's death ten years ago. Every year, he returns to her grave and the little town she grew up in. This time, instead of roaring away on his bike, he tries to stop a man from sabotaging a lab and ends up getting raised from the dead by a witch. Nicholas discovers his superpowers very soon after and becomes the guardian of the town. Yet it isn't as tranquil as it once was, and a supervillain has set his sights on his town of which the woman Nic Nicholas Adams hasn't been at peace since his girlfriend's death ten years ago.

Yet it isn't as tranquil as it once was, and a supervillain has set his sights on his town of which the woman Nicholas is falling for is the sheriff. Even with his superpowers, can Nicholas defeat a seemingly invincible skeleton of a villain and save the place he's come to love again? A great superhero story with a classic origin story and hero-villain enmity. Nicholas reminds me a bit of Batman in that he's a bit dark, but he has a good soul.

His struggle with his past makes him all the more intriguing. The sheriff, Julianna is a perfect complement to him. She's a modern day paladin. I love seeing women in strong roles such as this. And the villain, oh, he's terrifying. I also really adored Gavina the witch and Ginny who's an old lady that takes Nicholas in. They were hilarious. There's a strong romantic plot throughout the story. Nicholas and Julianna have a lot of contend with in the past as well as the present.

It's nicely woven with the main storyline. This is a fast-paced and smoothly written book with enough SOCK! I'll definitely be picking up the next book in the series. Oct 07, Cherie rated it really liked it. Zoltack has created a classic superhero and villain for her novel.

Nicholas Adams has the typical tragic and troubled past and a strong moral code as he morphs from man to super-man. My favorite character is Gavina, the witch. Julianna Paige is a strong heroine, although her wishy-washy attitude toward Nicholas got a little old toward the end.

The novel started out fast-pace and ended the same with a slight slowdown in the middle. Zoltack kept me guessing on how the Black Hellebore would ever defeat the villain, and I thought how he did was ingenious. And that ending gave a hint of what more is to come for the Black Hellebore and Falledge.

Black Hellebore by Nicole Zoltack spins a refreshing superhero tale with its fantastic paranormal elements! I look forward to reading the next book in the series. Jan 16, Jane Stewart rated it it was ok Shelves: paranormal-romance. I wanted to quit reading, but I stuck with it. Things did not develop or build enough.

For example: Juliana asks Nick if he ever killed anyone. He is silent. So she puts handcuffs on him and drives him to jail. She would figure out whom he killed later. Then something else needs her attention, so she does not put him in jail, and then she forgets about it. This fits within the romance genr I wanted to quit reading, but I stuck with it.

Nick used to love Justina who died. He has been a drifter for 10 years. He feels guilt. Now he has a relationship with Juliana, the twin sister. Nick is a superhero, thanks to help from a witch.

I could not put this down.

Read it in one evening. Everyone has skeletons in their closet, Nicholas Adams was no different. Plagued by the death of his girlfriend he ran away from the only home he had ever known. Justina was his whole world. She brought out the very best in him. All he had ever asked was for her not to do drugs, as both his parents had died from using. This causes a chain reaction of events that propels him to leave the ton of Falledge. He returns to visit Absolutely incredible! He returns to visit her graveside and other events cause him to stay.

He is exposed to chemicals, brought back to life by a witch, ends up with super powers and falls in love with Justina's twin sister Julianna. A never ending whirlwind as Nicholas helps Julianna get rid of the mob that is threatening to invade their town. A revengeful man exposed to the same chemicals is on a killing spree, offing everyone responsible for his termination of work and exposure to those same chemicals.

I am impressed with how Nicole Zoltack has created a super hero with real life problems. Many plot twists and this will keep you on the edge of your seat.

That is where is life begins to change, he becomes the Black Hellebore, for the reason behind the name and the how, you'll have to read the story. No spoilers here! Throughout the story a growing love interest between Julianna and Nicholas develops, but he needs to deal with Justina's memories to allow it to grow. This was a true superhero kind of story that keeps you interested and wanting to know what happens next! I'm about to pick up the next book in this series, White Hellebore, to find out what happens! This can be read as a standalone, but it does leave an opening for the next book without a major cliffhanger.
