Hi, i have seen two helli's that i am thinking of ordering, the ashwood black, and the metallic blue from suttons, my question is simple to anyone growing or having grown these, that is, are the adv pics a true reflection of the plants, is the black, black. I like to hold my plants before i buy so any thoughts or recommendations, regards Phil

Personally I dont like the 'black' ones, but having seen some very dark ones at Ashwoods last week, then theirs are a very dark, matt black with an almost purple/burgundy 'tinge' to them in some cases. J.

Pash, intended to buy the black but it wouldn't have flowered until next year. I went for dusky grape with flowers
Ashwoods are great..got lot of their hellebores.
The black? Not many true blacks but I think their black is as near as damnit. I will go for black next year but in 3 litre flowering sze.
Metallic blue from suttons? Pob very small plants.
Look at harvington too....they sell plugs. Have a look
