Lynda, Fraser’s Thimble Farms was offering ‘Lady’ hellebores at their 2002 website. While you are there, make sure you check out their Japanese hepaticas. Oo la la! Collecting them could be an expensive hobby! If you search at Google using the keywords helleborus +lady (the plus sign means lady must be on the same page as helleborus) you will also find some wholesale sources, and maybe one of them would be suitable to recommend to your local grower. I think I will wait until someone on the east coast offers the ‘Lady,’ because even though they sound luscious, shipping cross-country can be prohibitive.
When dealing with frost it is always best to be paranoid. In the spring never think it is too late for one more frost to come. And in the fall never think it too early.
