Hellebore 'Jacob' fading to pink picotee. It didn't do that last year.
First time for this plant of Hellebore 'Joseph Lemper' to bloom. Not looking very impressive, but next year should be nice.
Just as the H. niger's are fading, Hellebore 'Champion' starts to open. I bought this last year as H. niger 'Joseph' but I knew it wasn't, since the leaves were wrong. I believe that this is H. x ericsmithii 'Champion' since it was the only other white Hellebore that the company sold. More green tinge than H. niger, which is typical for the x ericsmithii hybrids. A bit disappointing to me at first, but now I like it.
