I collected the seeds from my hellebores last spring and direct sowed them in severeal spots in my gardens. I failed to mark the spots but I believe I have some sprouting now, any help identifying would be greatly appreciated.

RE: what do seedling leaves look like?

Gardengals pictures look great- Here in Woodstock, Ga my newest seedlings are still very rough looking- the leaves have not seperated and are pale as I just pulled the leaf cover off them,Also they are lanky from trying to reach throught the leaves. When in doubt give them time!
Best regards,
