    These others are hybrids....don't know the names. I do have Helleborus foetidus as well but it was only planted last fall and did not produce flowers this year.

    A couple more....

    This is a HUGE patch. I haven't cleaned up the old dead leaves on it yet so please excuse the messy appearance.

    This one is only a year old and is still working on growing. The flower (notice the tight bud) is almost jet black. It has good new growth this spring so I'm hoping it will catch this year and have a good blooming next spring.

    Very nice, I just stopped in at Belgian Nursery on my way back from Kitchener Thursday morning and bought 2. They are not as pretty as your doubles.

    Beautiful! Thank you! I have the black Hellebore but it hasn't given me a good blooming yet. It's a young plant so hopefully next year it will have a nice flowering.

    You've got to love hellebores. Mine finished flowering a month ago, but isn't it cool they can take such a range of climates and succeed.
