Of all the plants we have grown in our nursery over the years, the 'Double Hybrids' have probably been the most exciting. We were very fortunate to be able to import some plants in 1986 from England, which were expertly quarantined by Dennis Hughes at Blue Mountain Nurseries in Tapanui which is not very far from our place. From these original plants and a very small amount of seed that came double, we have built up numbers to the stage where we can release the plants for sale.

As with the single H x orientalis, there is a huge variation in flower colour, shape and size, as well as they actual size of the plant and the form of the leaves.

The Doubles have their origin from a plant called Helleborus torquatus 'Dido' which was found in the wild to have a double form. It is interesting to note that the doubling is the result of the flowers nectaries developing into petals. Some appear to have a fluffy appearance with many layers of petals while others are flatter with two or three distinct rows of petals.

Double White Picotee

Description:

This hybrid is a result of crossing the single White Picotee with a Double flowered plant. There is a lot of variation in the prodgeny of this cross. Some are Single, some give us the Anemone Centered White Picotees and some form Doubles. Always interesting to see these flower the first time. We can now produce the doubles more regularly using two Double forms.
