Which hellebores do you have?

I have a few white hellebores and stinking hellebore, my favourite is just a pure white single (not H. niger though I do have that too).

Not sure which hellebore this is but it started flowering in November and is still full of flowers.I also have a pale pink one and have just planted a dark maroon. No names!

Some of these are of the same plant. I’ll post the second set of photos after this one.

I have 2 large plants, 1 dark pink & 1 dark purple. Both were gifts from my grandparents; seedlings from their garden over a decade ago.

I also have some younger seedlings from them, one of which is that yellowy, speckled one. Got about 6 others in a nursery bed that are due to flower this year, most of which I’ll probably pass on if they’re the same type.

The double one was rescued from B&Q’s reduced section a couple of years ago and stayed in its pot until I was confident it was disease free, because there was some odd dieback on the leaf stems.

Finally, the green & pink speckled one came from a specialist grower I visited on very cold day. As the weather had been so cold and wet, they didn’t have many available for sale or I might have ended up buying more and then trying to squeeze them in somewhere!

Too many to mention! Mostly from the wonderful Ashwood Nurseries but some self seeded as well. Here are a few of my favourites.

You have loads! All beautiful. Number 5 is particularly nice to me, with the unusual colouring and nectaries.

Lovely, I wish my H. niger looked as vigorous as yours! No flowers this year, I think too shaded.
