Oh, yes, quite probably. 

Got a wonderful new hellebore grown from seed wild collected in Bosnia by an 
Englishman during the war at mine. Got it for eight bucks, too.  Unique 
clone, of course.  But while it is unique and very wonderful--sublime red 
petioles---I'd have bought it even if the whole nursery was full of identical 
ones. It is also important to be able to respect the good stuff even when it 
is common. And the performers.
