Ice Breaker Max…

Hellebore Gold Collection Ice Breaker Max(i)

I’m a little confused by this one, as the label at Wisley – is not ‘Helleborus x ericsmithii’  as it appears elsewhere in The Internet, and is more Ice Breaker Maxi than Max. It might also be synonymous with the name Winter’s Glow. Hey Ho. Beautiful nevertheless.

  1. I adore this hellebore – absolutely adore it, but keep coming back to the name confusion here too (Virginia, USA) I bought labelled well as ericsmithii but have seen it referred to as above as well. I’d be willing to take Wisley’s word for it, except I know this is the FIRST time I’ve ever seen ‘Maxi’ – if they can make that mistake, they could make another. Hmmmmmm…. I think I’ll just call it a nigercors hybrid and be done with it. Thanks for the post.
