  1. My goodness you have so many lovely hellebores.

  2. Cathy says:

    Fabulous! I am green (and pink, white, yellow and red) with envy! 😉

  3. Christina says:

    Ditto Cathy’s comment! they are gorgeous.

  4. Wow! That looks like an advert for Ashwood! You could give them a run for their money 😉

    • Cathy says:

      Many of them are courtesy of Hayloft, when they have their very reasonably priced collections – although they still take a while to bulk up and flower

  5. I’ll take one of each, please! 🙂 (oh how I wish!)

    What a wonderful collection. Beautiful. Am really trying hard not to be jealous.

  7. This post is a keeper, for the next time I go Hellebore shopping! Simply stunning and often so shy…

  8. AnnetteM says:

    Wow – nothing else to say!

  9. Nicely done. Gorgeous

  10. Chloris says:

    Wow! What a fantastic collection. You make me want to go out and dig mine all up and start again.

  11. MCH says:

    Breathtaking!!!!! I have never grown a Hellebore but I think I shall have to after seeing yours. Brava!

  12. Beth F says:

    Super grid! I can’t wait to see flowers again.

  13. A gorgeous collection and nicely presented too. I have a few of these varieties, they are just starting to break bud up here 🙂

    I only have Helleborus Pirouette in my garden, but now I know what to look for, thanks for sharing, Cathy!

  15. Amy says:

    Speechless – or nearly! Congratulations on such a beautifully grown collection!

  17. What a wonderful collection you’ve documented. You have some lovely cultivars I’ve never seen, like the last one in the fifth row. What wonderful shape and movement to the petals! I love your balance of colors. How spectacular they must be growing in the garden. Thank you for sharing 😉 WG

  18. Kris P says:

    Now that’s a collection! Beautiful one and all.

  19. Rosietta says:

    I’m dying to get one … Wow. How big is your garden?

    • Cathy says:

      It’s a good tree for a small garden if that is what you have

      • Rosietta says:

        Helleborus are good trees? I have three lots but there is a lot planted here. Need to figure out a good home for some. I hear they are part shade … Just wondering if it will be too shady at the base of some trees we have. I wasn’t sure how big they get.

  20. Stunning! Now you’re showing off! I love them all…fab colours…exquisite! 🙂
