A Hellebore Surprise

This little beauty is from 2016, purchased when a friend and I attended a hellebore festival at Pine Knot Farms (PKF) in southern Virginia. This is the first time it has flowered. It was not in bloom when I brought it home so I am not quite positive about the name.  By process of elimination and studying the photos from that day, it seems to be Helleborus x hybridus ‘Apricot Blush’.

These 3 images are from yesterday afternoon.

These two photos are from this morning. The flower has opened a bit more.

      I have long admired the range of hellebores in your garden Pauline, so I am happy to have something different from my pinks and whites. I bought a deep purple one that day too that didn’t make it.

      You’ll probably enjoy them Christina–so long-lasting once they bloom. At the time I bought this one I also bought one of those really dark purple ones, but it didn’t make it. Should try that one again.
