Helleborus Orientalis is the botanical name of this early blooming shade perennial. it is more commonly known as the Lenten Rose. In the English speaking world they are known as the Lenten Rose but are not roses at all. They are actually of the Butter Cup family or Ranunculaceae. Their flowers bloom during the Easter celebration of Lent, leading the vernal procession of color in the shady areas of perennial gardens. They are an amazing plant and flower that start blooming in winter! One of the only plants that do and they last for months. Very special.
