I have one flowering at the moment, plenty of buds but not yet blooming. These look very happy.

Hi Sandra, no this is actually last February, it's a bit behind this year due to snow and cold. Just coming in to bud. Being new to GOY, and a bit thick, I didn't realise that when you put items in yourgarden plant section that any pictures with them went on the members pictures page of the site. So, when I realised, I felt a bit of a fraud as it would suggest it was now. Sorry. I'll get the hang of using this web site eventually, I hope!!!!!

Hi Paulthergardner, Could you look at the photo I posted of the hellebore and let Jacque and I know if it's the same as yours as we don't know the name.

I wish I know if mine is blooming like this. I always cut all the leaves off in the Fall so I can see the flowers better in Winter/Spring time

Yes Doon, I quite often remove leaves on some of my other kinds of Hellebore to see the blooms better, but it always seems a shame because they are lovely glossy leaves aren't they.

Yes they R gorgeous Paul, but you know how "hungry" we get for those blooms, so I get wild with my shears. I must say some I leave alone, but the more robust ones I shear.
