I have several with semi upward facing flowers...will take a few pictures.
soil and situation make a difference too...plant on higher ground or near a wall (if the soil is reasonably moist there).
Niger does have flowers more upward facing but they lack the class of some of the hybrid hellebores
The doubles overcome this to an extent too because their flowers look so good from above. Good doubles are so floriferous.
My advice is to avoid "bargain" ofters and go online to Ashwoods for example. Also to see them in flower.
