Got this one from The Boyz last year and I love the colors on it :) Hopefully I'll be able to get some seedlings from it!

Just beautiful!

How easy is it to start hellebore seeds? My very first one is blooming now (white double) and I don't know what to look for..... I sure wish I had a little of that one to pollenate with - I bet they would make beautiful babies!

I saw one of these at the nursery in Woodland, but it didn't come home with me when I saw the price! :(

I don't collect any hellebore seeds, I just let them do their thing and every year about this time there are dozens of babies around some of my plants. I have about 20 1-year old seedlings of a purple anemone form that are looking really nice and starting to bloom for the first time. The mamma plant is next to a Heronswood double on one side and a single picotee edge on the other side, so who knows how the insects mixed up the pollen. Here is the parent, and most of the babies so far look a lot like this, with a little variation in color:
