Helleborus x orientalis ‘Smokey Blue’
The main Hellebores to be cultivated by gardeners are the Lenten Rose varieties in a wide range of colour forms from white to pink, plum and deep blackish-purple, often conspicuously spotted reddish-purple. Very rare and very beautiful, the flowers of this variety are said to appear a shade very deep purple to almost black, contrasted by yellow stamens. The saucer-shaped purple-blue flowers from February to April.

Thank you Sue 🙂
You are most welcome! Have a good weekend, hope it’s sunny in Ludlow, it’s lovely here 🙂
Yes, lovely here (though absolutely p***ing it down at 6 a.m.) still got a pale blue sky – I am so glad that the days are getting longer, that is the absolute hate I have for winter. I could never live in Scandanavia during the winter. Hoping to get out at the weekend and find some spring flowers perhaps 🙂
