Ooooo I do REALLY Luv Dogwoods - Soooo warming on a damp n dreary day they simply glow in the winter don't they for sharing Zigger's
Old English - Dagwood, like Dagger. Good for making skewers for cooking on. You can check it's a true Dogwood when it's in leaf, tear one across and it'll have latex strands
Helleborus hybrid Salvia guaranitica "Black and Blue" Galanthus "Hillpoe" Grevillea victoriae Salvia darcyi Helleborus argutifolius
@Zigs In post #1 it looks as though your bush is on fire . Hope it wasn't painful
Must be a sign from glod, blessed are the cheese makers
Hellebores Aconites and snowdrops:
Those hellebores are lovely - I think they should, however, be given a new name - a combination of ''hell'' and ''bore'' is just not right I wonder if we could come up with a new name for them
What beautiful hellebores! I've been looking at Ashwood's website with a view to adding some doubles to my 3 lonely plants, but at £20-35 each I think not! Don't think seed would work either...the seedlings around mine are all flowering single. Rats! Posts crossed, Tetters....you're right. Not the most appealing name for a lovely flower, but you try getting a different one past the taxonomists!!
Common names are 'Christmas rose' Winter rose' or 'Lenten rose' Tetters, any one would suit I think.
Those Hellebores are BEEutiful -Im a happy Bee I just found a little Christmas Rose - not a double granted but a single thats a lovely Lime green and opaque white shade, didn't have that shade so im hoping for some cross-pollination in any future seedlings-and as an added bonus on sale for the grand total of 30p
Hayloft plants are selling 10 varieties of young Hellbores for £10 for all 10 plants.
Thanks for that, @ARMANDII. Will have a drool later.....here's hoping that they send to France!
