Helleborus hybridus "Onyx Odyssey"


By Naoto

Helleborus hybridus "Onyx Odyssey" (Helleborus orientalis (Lenten rose))

Bred by Northwest Garden Nursery in Oregon, US and purchased it as one of 3 plug plants from Hayloft Plants, UK two years ago.

This is the first time blooming in my garden.....cup-shaped double flowers in dark reddish purple colour. It's a shame that it looks better in person, really.....

It's very lovely. Deep, rich colour. Well done bringing it on.

I'm looking forward to the 2nd year flowering of a miniature peonea that a friend on Goy gave me. It also has a small rich flower.
