Hi Joseph,

Sorry it took me so long to reply been busy with school, But to answer your question yes mine are from NWGN I worked for E&M for 7 years before I moved to Vegas and now I haved moved back again so I of course would only buy mine from them they in my opinion are the best and I also propogate my own (since they taught me most of what I know). :)

Helleborus beginning to bloom here in my yard and a few blooms starting on my Primula 'Gold Lace' and my Hamamelis x intermedia 'Jelena' just starting to open up.

We're in the deep freeze here, and after 14" of snow two weeks ago, it is mostly gone (not melted, but evaporated/dehydrated).  This past fall, my plant labeled Hamamelis x intermedia 'Jelena' flowered heavily, out of season, and with yellow not reddish-orange flowers, so its identity is in doubt, or perhaps it was an anomalous flowering for both the season and flower color.  I remember when I lived in the Seattle Washington area, having something in bloom year-round... not the case here with our much harder winters.

Like here the last 15 years except this and the other year! My earliest hellebores are just 5cm tall and no sign of color on the witch hazel either.

With our exceptionally mild winter so far, I was out looking at my hellebores....they are about 5 cm high too.  I'm not happy as we can expect snow and cold temps any day...not sure what will happen to them then.  Gee, even my snowdrops are in bud already and they normally don't bloom until April around here!

I just ordered two of M&E's hellebores, 2 of 'Golden Sunrise' with the most yellow foliage, and 1 of "Onyx Jewel." They wont arrive until spring, so no photos until the following winter. These will be my first hellebores, as I haven't had a location for them until now.

You will not be disappointed and then you will be hooked. :). mine are all nearly in full bloom here along with my Galanthus and Erianthus and my Erythronium and Trillium are peeking out of the ground. I will post some pics when I have a bit more time during the day to take some.

Ouch Trond!  That is one sad clump of hellebores!

Mine are under 5 feet of snow...no frost in the ground before the snow fell so they should be in suspended animation until May.

Looking forward to seeing blooming hellebores at the WWSW in two weeks in Victoria!
