Helen Ballard - The Hellebore Queen
by Gisela Schmiemann

This spectacular book, with impressive though stylised photography, gives the full story of Helen Ballard's hellebore breeding achievement. Not an essential book, but necessary for the more degvoted of hellebore fanatics.

Unfortunately this interesting book is very hard to find. It's available from the Royal Horticultural Society bookshop at Wisley but is not in their online catalogue or listed om amazon.
This is one of the nicest plant monographs I have ever seen.'
