I have seen MANY helleborus, none of which have struck me like this one has, just plain awesome!! I have just found your site, and just, last 10 minutes, joined, and behold, the first picture I see! Can anyone tell me, send me to the place where I might be able to purchase one like that?
I have not even spotted the name, Frostkiss, before. I do hope that I'm not 'out of line' in asking for this help! Three awesome pictures!!!

Welcome! to ATP!
While I didn't find a nursery online selling them, looks like the Frostkiss is a series, here is the whole plug company that supplies the liners to the nursery, ask around your local nurseries to see if they carry it.

If you edit your profile, it's nice for us to know where you are from! Thumbs up
The photographer of the image, member kniphofia, is from the UK, so at least we know they are available over there.

Hello and thanks for your comments. Yes this one really stopped me in my tracks at the plant centre at Harlow Carr. One of the anemone flowered types which aren't that readily available in nurseries here. I photographed the label and here are a couple more views of the flowers.

I was in a Lowes in Central Virginia today and spotted some of these. They didn't have any blooms. Price was 10.98. They were with the shade plants.

I noticed they did have Tutu in the line up of the site provided but I don't think it looks like the one pictured above. The one above is simply awesome. Actually, they all are. I have three plants and want more.
