Hellebores with nodding flower (not drooping ones)

which hellebores have upright nodding flowers like niger? Looking for double ones and colored ones as well.

 Last year i bought plugs of lady series ones and now that they are coming to flower, they have all flowers drooping.

    It was the Niger which had got me interested in Hellebores. They kept saying hello to me for weeks even in wind and rain last winter whenever i looked at them from kitchen window.

    How do Harvington's double do? Was looking at Hellebore ellen too but they seem to lack height. Last year I bought one or two plants in flower(double type) from nursery but I lost tags. Just dont feel like going there, it takes a long time by bus.

  • Have a look at the 'Ericsmithii' cultivars, which have led to the ''Gold Collection" cultivars. Strong plants, whites, creams, green tinted and purples.

    Thanks. Looks i should go to nursery to choose the colour and form.

  • Verdun, I gave up trying to prise open peoples' wallets. Running a garden centre has left me more cynical then ever and I policed for 26 years! I just get in the plants I like and hope!
