Thanks, Amy- I should give the yahoo group a look :) I wouldn't  ask for seed coming into the group  without something to contribute though, but its okay, no hurry!

I donated tons of seeds last year to the Yahoo Group as well and lots of other people (including famous nursery people) did, too! There were some species seeds as well...

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)

Thank you all.

Glorious flowers, Geoffrey!  That hybrid H. torquatus flower has the attraction of a double with the eloquence of a single!  :o  It looks like the plant inherited the beautiful foliage of the species, too.

I plan on hand pollinating my Helleborus purpurascens this season.  Protecting the pistil from contamination won't be as easy as Lillium spp.  If I am successful, I'll offer the seed them here on the Forum.  They open pollinated easily with lots of seed, so it should work.

Absolutely Rick, this torquatus hybrid has the dissected foliage of the species (my favourite species I think), I love it, it's a Koen Van Poucke's selection, he has very beautiful species in his nursery garden (great form of dumetorum, viridis etc.).

Geoffrey, I love your collection! I especially like the pink flower with yellow nectaries! It must be one of Thierry's creations, right?

But...Are you Saori on the Facebook group Heavenly Hellebores?  ;)

Yes, I'm the same Saori. :P  Nice meeting here, as well! ;)

Yes indeed Saori, it's a Thierry's selection, I live near his nursery and I enjoy every year to go to its special Hellebore open days.
It's a pleasure to see your pics.

Michael, you have a marvellous collection!
One seedling of mine is to flower for the first time in some days - it looks so far to be almost as black as this one! I'll take a picture later.
