Quiz? What is one of the easiest plants to grow with gorgeous flowers that bloom from early spring to mid-June? Answer: A Lenten rose or a Christmas rose named so because it normally blooms during Lent. The Latin name is Hellebore. Once the plant is mature, it can produce 50 or more flowers each season. The blooms are 2-3 inch in size. It is a shade plant and blooms in a variety of rich colors from an almost black to ivory. They make a luscious border for ferns and hostas. They are deer and rabbit resistant. Our nursery is carrying 7 varieties of the Hellebore. Pictured below are five varieties.
