Oh how beautiful Amy. I would say it was early. It will be interesting to find out how long it stays in flower. - Through to next spring I hope!! I have added this one to my wish list ... gorg

Thank you both .. It must have been in flower for some time because it has several fully open flower heads as well as the buds ,it would be lovely if it lasts until the spring Poppy , I will keep an eye on it to see how long it blooms for .........

I agree i think its flowering early but lovely to see it, as it so lovely i hope it stays in flower along time for you, or i wonder if they will die off and come back again in spring.

For thoes of you who like me love this Hellebore of Amy's I Have Googled it And it is a commercial strain that comes in many different shades so you could be disappointed if purchased out of flower.

Thanks for that Brian you are right ,it does actually show it in different colours on the plant label , it also says grow in non acidic soil , my soil is acid it hasn't done it any harm so far ,time will tell , I'll let you know if it has seeds !
