Hellebores in bloom
Just had to comment on my first Hellebore hybrid blooms. I bought seeds from ET several years ago and got almost 100% germination, then somewhat neglected them so this is the first year I have had blooms. What fun to see how they turned out! These are my first ever Hellebores so I don't have much to compare them with. Out of the 30 or so plants, perhaps 70 percent are blooming this year and I have two stunning (to me) double white/green vigorous plants, a lovely plum double and many clear (not muddy) plum singles. I was surprised at the consistency, I thought the seedlings would be more variable. Nevertheless, they are certainly as nice as any of the singles I have seen in the local nurseries and doubles are simply not available.
