Ah, thanks papi jo....obvious now you explain it. 

no, neither Amistad nor Embers Wish need staking.  Sturdy and self supporting despite last year Amistad exceeding 7' .

the patens group is the bluest......from pale sky blue to the darkest rich blue;  all true blues without any purple taint.  

"Stacking" ?  How do you mean that?

Amistad and Embers Wish are taller more vigorous ....can post pictures if wanted.  Amistad will grow 6' plus; Embers slightly less tall.

Did you treat the fence there Stuart?    Possible continuous run off ?  

How about making that pebble strip a little wider to incorporate that affected area?

Tennuissima is not much to look at out of flower.  Elymus magellanicus is a glorious evergreen glaucous blue...colour of juvenile eucaluptus leaves.....and would match your colour scheme perfectly

It is what I think Ellen.  Not really a pot plant 

do I cut back hellebores, if so when?

The fun, Fairy, is in seeing those big fat coloured buds emerging from the ground.  .  With foliage you would not see them. 

Does no harm whatsoever to remove leaves but I do remove summer flowers....they are lost when surrounding summer perennials are flowering anyway.  Removing summer flowers helps hellebores to build up for their season of flowering
