Trond, I will let you know when the seeds are ready. It will be probably late June to early July.

Hope your plants are protected under the snow! We've had a mild winter so far and lots of plants have started to grow. I'm a bit concerned about a potential coming cold snap which might kill the new shoots...

From the beautiful Pacific Northwest, USA,
where summer is mild and dry but winter is dark and very wet... USDA Zone 7b or 8 (depends on the year)

A really nice range! Do they all look about the same foliarly?

"foliarly"... try saying that fast three times. :D
(I already did, and was not successful.)

Always a good show, Michael!  :o

The botanist in me marvels at the variability of the stamens and structures that are the modified petals (sometimes given another name, depending on who you talk too).

I am particularly pleased with that Niger,I have difficulty keeping that one in good condition. I don't think it likes our climate.

You have a lot of nice ones, Michael! At work they are selling some Hellebores in the floral section- something simple- white flowers long petals, maybe niger.. I was wondering if it would be worthwhile trying to get one to plant out later-- but I'd have to keep it happy indoors for most of 3 months yet! Plus they are $20, and I'm cheap...lol but its probably the only time I'll see them in person (as temporary indoor flowers), I doubt if local nurseries are likely to carry them for outdoor planting in summer, with no flowers on them, though I guess I can watch for them...
