Helleborus thibetanus is the earliest Hellebore; it's been flowering since the beginning of February

This is an interesting, and a beautiful little plant. Ours are the progeny of a NACPEC collection; I dont know the source of the Barry's germplasm, but it is available at Asiatica. It seeds so readily, I expect that if it isn't there now it'll appear quickly at Plant Delights, Lazy S'S, and other cutting edge places. There's a good site, that has a scientific but interesting treatment of it.This plant is located under the Davida in the Asian Collections.
