Yann
Some very impressive hellebores indeed.
Re length of flower stalk, I have also seen this with with Ashwood Neon seedlings. Not a good feature to be present.

This one can't compare to all those beauties, Yann.  Purchased as Helleborus torquatus, its stems are rubbery and its dark flower doesn't make up for the floppiness!  I plan to give it away.

You in France (or close to it) are so lucky to have such a place to see and buy Hellebores! :)

The development of daffodil yellow hellebore flowers has come on in leaps and bounds from the days when all 'primrose' colors had a green under tone. Can now be said to be yellow, thanks to the Ashwood yellows with nectaries that have no chlorophyll pigmentation. The same line has also probably been used to develop apricot shades that are apricot coloured retest than the primrose with pink tinges.

this yellow helleborus also has a tendency to raise its flowers a little more than the average.
i hope it will stay like this. it starts looking upwards like a tulip! it reminds me a bit of a Paeonia mloko

i love yellow flowers as much as others, but it seems most people don't.

at this nursery, I also found
a giant Geranium phaeum
a giant Epimedium (wushanense)
a very beautiful Coniogramma omeiana

This is my yellow indulgence that I bought from Ashwoods. Very beautiful but unfortunately seems particularly prone to black spot.

Really beautiful yellows! Ten years ago when I bought seeds from Ashwood and grew yellows from them, they were still paler yellows, nothing as bright as what you have now.

Thanks in advance.

We wanted a quite a lot of Hellebores to add to our small woodland area, so for cost sake we grew them all from seed. Three years on and we have got quite a good flowering from them this season. Shown below are a couple of montages to illustrate all the differing forms that are currently flowering.

Paul great collection especially like the dank double.
Gail in a way it is unfortunate that then pursuit of new colours often is accompanied by a reduced resistance to fungal disease.
To counter this I always cut off all leaves after the flowering buds emerge to maximize air flow and also spray the emerging buds with a fungicide that targets black spot. What is teh appearance of teh fungal infection?

Very nice selections Paul and in a short time!
They are so easy, I don't know why not more people are growing Helleborus from seeds.
