Helleborus 2021

Due to covid and lockdown uncertainties Delabroye nurseries open days are sooner than previous years.

It was very dark and i didn't take enough time for better photos but here's the first blossoms of the season.

Beautiful selections Yann, every year they have something new. They are flowering earlier this time.
What was your choice?

It's an early star with only 30% blooming, in 3-4 weeks it'll be a festival. Thierry feared about new lockdown so he's opening the nursery this week-end.

I choose a bicolor form because i want to cross it with anemone form. I also brought back several single forms white and burgundy. The garden is full and i didn't buy so many plants in 2020.

Yes, you can tell these are the first flowers. Hopefully they manage to sell the most of them rapidly.
The bicolor also draw my attention as well.

The bicolor ones were also my favourites, but all are so beautiful! It must have been difficult to choose:).

Nice bi color, similar to an Ashwood series. Where there other plants similar to the bi color? If so any with longer flower scapes?
