Another favorite hellebore...
What a beauty! Thanks for sharing!
Love the dark veins...
Thanks for looking, alina!
(My husband is sick of looking at them. Grin.)
Yeah, husbands do not care :) My DH offers to remove all my flower beds and replace them with grass every year ;o)
As for your flower, it reminds me an anemone type Hellebore I bought from Pine Knot Farm. The second row of petals disappeared for some reason, but the coloration is so lovely, so I do not mind. Very similar to yours. I bought many darker varieties, but I found that pinks look amazing in the landscape settings.
Actually, my husband turned to me recently and said "your hellebores look very nice" and I was amazed that he knew a hellebore from a daisy. (Even though I rattle on about them constantly!) He tends to like bright red tuberous begonias and New Guinea impatiens --anything large and bright and cheerful. But he also complimented a tiny Hepatica, so who knows? Your DH may be planting a flower garden any day now...
I dream of a double green hellebore. A big, green Double Queen. The best would be to grow one from my own seed. I have a white double queen (photo on this forum) planted near a single green x hybridus and there are seed pods! Maybe I'll get lucky.
