Below is a collection of the hellebores - hope you're not bored with them.

Think the breeder is a lady called Lorna Jones for the following beauty, but not 100% sure.

Could be Madame Lemoiniere or Angel. LOL! Can't tell the difference!

The last one is a white single anemone!

There are more, but the slugs left their calling cards. This year has been disastrous. I can't even take a decent pic.

Share yours please ..

I've never heard of Hellebores, do you happen to know other common names for it?

Gemma: They are also called Christmas roses, Lantern rose. They are very easy to grow.

Christmas Roses are Helleborus niger. Lentern roses are H. x orientalis. There are about 17 species with a few subspecies. My woodland garden is full of self sown ones.

Thank heavens that we have Owdboggy. Nobody is boggy or foggy after that!

@Owdboggy: Please share your pride and joy with us!

Oh, I like the green spotted one. I have never seen one like that. The last one I would like to use as for cross pollination. I used to have them, but really didn't like them. Wow! Thank you for uploading them!
