More ET seedling pictures

xanadu(8/9 N.CA)March 24, 2006

Several more Hellebores bore their first flowers and some previously photographed had better quality flowers. This is the same photo gallery as before but the new photos are all on the first page so you don't need to explore. I tried harder to get good shots (meaning I tried to hold still).

I've been studying up a little and found out more about what people might want in a hellebore flower. First, my ET seedlings have flowers in many sizes, from small to quite large, most being medium to large.

They are all flowering this year for the first time. I included a group shot of one area in my garden so you could see how prolific they are for first time bloomers.

Very few have outward facing flowers, unfortunately. Most have pointed instead of rounded petals.

A very few had odd or deformed foliage and odd or deformed or tiny flowers. I'll give these at least another year to improve.

I love my Hellebores, thank you for looking.
