Lenten Rose (Hellebore)

Lenten Rose (Hellebore)

This is a Lenten Rose in one of my woodland perennial borders. They're also called hellebore. They're related to buttercups, not roses. The plant got the name "Lenten Rose" because it blooms in late winter/early spring, often during Lent. This isn't the showiest Lenten Rose; they also come in shades of pink and burgundy red. There's even a spotted variety. One of the neighbors gave me this one several years ago. It has received no special care and is planted in clay soil with a compost dressing. Lenten Roses thrive in shade to part shade. They're usually propagated by root division; the seeds take 5-18 months to germinate.
