I dont know. I bought it donkeys years ago,because it was dusky pink and different to the white ones that seemed to be the only ones available then. There are about 12 of its seedlings in the same bed. The one I am digging up was a 1 yr seedling I moved two years ago, so even if I knew the name of the original, I can't call it that. I intend taking seeds off my new Ashbrook garden hybrids, but the seedlings can't be called that because they could have cross pollinated with anything else in the vicinity.
That said, all of the dusky pink offspring are pretty similar to the parent.
Now if you want pink........
In John Masseys garden yesterday. i didn't take a pic of the hellebore house, I was a bit overwhelmed, like a kid in a sweetshop full of pick and mix.
