Helleborus x hybridus Harvington double lilac speckled & Helleborus × hybridus Harvington picotee

My two purchases from Hodsock yesterday, impulse buys both.
The smaller of the two hellebores and most expensive, but the speckled double lilac was full of flower and looks particularly good at eye level. The Hugh Nunn nursery has got the breeding of these magnificent flowering plants off to perfection.
"Picotee" just said buy me. My wife said "Surely not." Always listen to your plants.
If there is a blemish with hellebores it is that they look best if one is on one's back looking up. But Picotee actually looks good looking down. And my shirts stay cleaner this way.
