Blooms in Late Winter and Early Spring!
Hellebore (Lenten Rose, Chrismas Rose) is the queen of the late winter and early spring shade garden. This evergreen perennial sets nodding flowers in unusual colors that last and last, drying to papery beauty right on the plant. Standing up to cold, poor soil, drought, heat, and humidity, this disease- and pest-resistant plant is long-lived and attractive year-round. Expect plants to reach 18 to 24 inches high and wide in part to full shade.
