Leena
Balkan species are probably more cold/snow tolerant than hybridus.
Guff
A fantastic collection of doubles, full and multi petalled.
Gabriela
That is a very dark form of Cherry Blossom. Assume it was from NWGN?

Guff, very nice doubles and I especially liked the white picotee one, and semidouble pink.

Jeff, you are right. :)
Here is a picture of H.multifidus which came up through snow. None of my hybridus are yet flowering.

Guff - wonderful collection! and
Nice to see the first one flowering Leena!

I don't know Jeff, most probable. I bought it from a small nursery here as a very young plant with one flower :) It is indeed a very nice specimen of the Cherry Blossom strain.

Bit surprised to see that the multifidus flowers have a tinge of pink to the flower back, always thought that this species was always green in and out.
Guff
Are the doubles all ex ETH?
Gabriela
Most of the Cherry Blossom series do not have the intense base colour of your one.

Here are a group of H. multifidus in my garden, probably mixed sub-species and/or crosses.
The second picture shows the flower stem of the plant at the bottom of the first photo looking very different to the foliage emerging below.

I have received two double yellow Hellebores from Twelve Nunns Nursery. Thanks for the information.

It may be a hybrid, you are right. It was grown from seed exchange seeds, so the mother plant was garden grown.
Still, it is fully deciduous unlike any of my Helleborus x hybridus.
The other H.multifidus with green flowers (picture in the first page) is from wild collected seeds (from a location where I'm told there isn't any other species), and looks more like it should,
though it does not have as fine leaves as Ian's plant.

The foliage associated with the flower bract is often different from appearance of the main leaf growth.

Helleborus thibetanus

Wonder if it's going to have two flower stalks come Spring?

Hopefully each of the emerging growths carry flowers.

What would be a good fertilizing routine for Hellebores? Would like to get my thibetanus seedlings growing as fast as possible.

Maybe the same routime I'm doing with Hepatica would work? When are buds formed underground?

My experience is the fertilizing is best applied when the plants are starting the new seasons green growth. good balanced NPK fertilizer.
