I bought this Helleborus named 'Hansen's Shamrock'. It seems there is no Helleborus by that name and I would really love to know the proper name, I think this one is pretty. Can anyone help me out.

I think it looks like this one but there is no real name. Confused

Could this be a seed strain from a group? For example the Winter Jewels series is a seed strain that is picked when in bloom and but into named categories.

The link above illustrates how 'Jade Tiger' can bloom many different ways and be 'Jade tiger'
I did some searching and Chris Hansen has a 'Green Gambler' on the market could this be a seed strain as well so there are variations?

I could not find a 'Shamrock' either. Might have to be a noid and it is very pretty and unusual!!

Very strange that this image and the one on Dave's garden is the same. It was posted by Mgarr in 2009. Are you the same person?

Looks like the person on DG added it to the DB and then posted the picture. There is no information at all. I found this! (link) It is the exact same picture. Confused

Yep, It's me both cases but it was a few years ago. To post on Dave's Garden the pictures are checked for correct names so that is how it got there but,,,,,,, Now the name shows up no where except where I posted it. I wish I had kept the info of where I bought it. Thanks for all your help. I think I'll just let it be Helleborus flower.

You might try contacting Chris Hansen of Great Garden Plants. Perhaps he can help you figure out what you have.

I found a listing for it in Allan M. Armitage book on Herbaceous Perennial Plants 3rd edition.
