I would be interested to know (as I plan to try some new crosses this year) if anyone has personally crossed any of the following :
Helleborus Dumetorum x Helleborus Hybridus
Helleborus Purpurascens x H.Hybridus
Also H.Vesicarius - would this cross with H.Hybridus ?.
I have not yet crossed species hellebores with hybridus - I'm uncertain what percentage success would be - for example crossing dumetorum with hybridus - is it just luck what the offspring would be or are there rough percentages, say that 25% would show dumetorum qualities for example ?!!I suspect the answer is it's just a lottery.
Another question - anyone any detailed info on colour inheritance from their own actual hellebore crosses ?
