|<<2014 Hellebore tour to Slovenia>>
We had the opportunity to visit some sites of Helleborus niger with our two great guides, Will McLewin and Matthias Thomsen, during our 2014 tour. The weather in Slovenia was much warmer than in normal years, so unfortunately, we were not able to see flowering H. niger around Lake Bled as almost all of them had gone to seed.
Instead, they took us to some fantastic places, especially one ski resort in the Krvavec mountain in Slovenia where we were able to see an amazing scene of H. niger covering the snow at an altitude of some 1,500 meters.
