Helleborus x hybridus Bosvigo Blue Black

A division of a plant from Wendy Perry at Bosvigo House. She grows some astonishing blue colours in her garden , and I have been trying to collect together plants to act as parents to produce blue colours. There seems to be a combination of characters required to produce 'blue'. A heavy white 'bloom' on the petals is superimposed on neutral colour petals. The black petalled forms end up looking frosted, the green/grey/brown colours look 'pewter-blue'. At least, that is the theory I am currently working on!
I am hoping that this plant will help me produce seedlings with a heavy 'bloom'.
