Another Hellebore!


Another Hellebore!

Couldnt resist this one and it took me ages to choose, i really love the double ones but they are very expensive. As these have been grown at the GC under cover I am keeping this one in my porch for now, I will plant it up come Spring!

Hi there its called 'Haryington pink speckled' bred by Harvington.!

11 Feb, 2012

 

Beautiful GM!
I've seen so many on here that I've decided I want some. Do you know the 'common' name?

11 Feb, 2012

 

THanks Lil, Sometimes they are called Christmas rose, not sure what others might call them!! Scroll to bottom of page and click on H. then click on Hellebore and see some of the photos there! Woweeeeee....

That is so pretty G.mage or whatever your name is! Lol.
Sent you a PM .:o)

Lovely colour!

11 Feb, 2012

 

Thats lovely GM....Fab colour.. Also Known as the Lenten Rose Ms Crawford. I didn't want to type Lenten rose Lily..sounds confusing.

11 Feb, 2012

 

Yes, Helleborus Niger is the Christmas Rose and Helleborus Hybridus and Orientalis are Lenten Roses. Then there's the Stinking Hellebore...H. Foetidus, which is beautiful and taller with flowers over the winter - green flowers, sometimes edged maroon, and the Corsican Hellebore, H. Argutifolius which has very hard grey/green leaves and paler green/yellowish green flowers very early. That's all the ones I know of...bet there are more!

Thanks Gill and Pimp, very helpful.

I agree Sheila they are worth their weight! Lil if you lived closer we could all help!

Lil look at member Naoto and check the video link. The Video sold me on these flowers.

11 Feb, 2012

Thank you Pp. I think its because they are the 1st. flower of the new season that we all like them, they are so beautiful. Thank you Junna, they are very special, glad you like them.

14 Feb, 2012

18 Feb, 2012

 

They are early Lindak, think thats why we all like them so much.

I'll have to try to find a corner in my very small garden for one.

19 Feb, 2012

 

Ooooohh yes you will, Lin. or maybe two or three ! Lol

19 Feb, 2012

 

:0) Just bought an agapanthus and a Nerine and put into pots. Tried growing them in the garden without success.

19 Feb, 2012

 

I always find Ag. like to be in pots anyway and I suppose Nerine do too, lovely, i like pots never can have too many!
