Would love to see a photo when they're all at their best. I've only got a few and have waited patiently for a few years for some babies ..... maybe this year I will be lucky
I like the really dark ones though the lighter ones make more impact in the garden. And the ones with the dark rim and dark spots inside.
Couldn't find a hellebore picture. Iris stylosa is out though. Might even remember what it's called now if I think about it.
I like it. I like anything that flowers now. It's just under a window so I can see it without going out in the cold. Hellebores are coming along nicely, have to make sure I take so pics.
Found a hellebore. It's the native one H. foetidus
You get to a point when they come up like weeds. They seem to come fairly true to the parent but I do dump the dirty pinks.
They'll seed about well if you're a selective weeder. You get to recognise them very quickly and their usually very close under the parent which is a bit of a giveaway.
I haven't noticed that but it may be so. If you've got any of the doubles they may not. I've never examined a double hellebore but a lot of double flowers are sterile
It is a bit addictive but I still only grow the singles with hanging heads. I'm not so attracted to the newer ones.
