The seed pods forming on Hellebore lividus look quite pretty. It had quite a few flowers considering it was relatively a small plant only a few months ago #hellebore #helleborus #helleborus-lividus #helleboruslividus #majorcanhellebore

Those elongated seed pod protrusions make these ones extra attractive. I wonder if it's fully hardy over here?

I wasn’t sure what they would look like Sherri 😄 it was an impulse buy and I only thought about the foliage initially, forgot completely that they flowered too 😆 @sherrisgarden

Thanks Jeff, apparently not and I’d kept it in the polytunnel since I bought it. But so far I’ve never had it under fleece within the tunnel so hoping it’s just gonna need the cover of the tunnel to get through winter. It’s been outside now for a couple of weeks since the weather has warmed up. @jeatacake

I thought it would be a little tender. Looks like you'll get some seeds though which you could experiment with in terms hardiness of the seedlings? 🤔

Thanks everyone 😊 it was a bargain at Wisley a couple of weeks ago. However, it’s not going outside over winter as this species is tender in the U.K. - it is advised to usually grow this one undercover in winter then plunge it in a pot outside in the summer. If you do leave it outside over winter there is a risk frost (or snow) will kill it off. @anges @pelly @novicegardenlover @suerichards @linfoster @kez001uk @ublaszko

Good to know. I'll be giving it a miss then as don't have a greenhouse to overwinter it.
