More species hellebores are starting to show here now.

Photos 1 & 2 show H. hercegovinus from Montenegro.
Photo 3 is H. viridis from a site in northern Italy (this particular site is the locus classicus for H. viridis).
Photo 4 shows H. odorus from Hungary, close to the border with Croatia.
Photo 5 shows Bosnian H. torquatus flowering for the first time at 3 years old.
Photo 6 is of an unclassified species growing in the Velebit mountains, Croatia.
As above for photo 7.

No, I have no provenance and I have never bought Hellebores. I have seen this Helleborus in my garden for the first time. I grow H. orientalis hybrids and many H. niger grow behind my house in the forest.

Ooh, yes, that is a good one. Is it the neighbour or the plant who does not give seed? If the plant, then I would suggest repeated attempts at artificial pollination, it is worth it for this colour!

Hans, have you tried to pollinate this plant with the pollen from another hellebore? This can often work if a plant seems not to produce seed if pollinated with its own pollen. If this doesn't work, feed it heavily so that it bulks up and you can take a division as soon as possible :)

Would you be able to take a photo of the hellebore in your post dated February 25th when the growth has advanced? I would like to see the flower bracts and some young leaves if possible.

That is a very nice Hellebore Hans!  I hope you try to self it, or at least save the seed to see if it breeds true.
