These beautiful shade loving plants are also known as Hellebores but I prefer to call them Lenten Roses.
The silver moon variety, which I have, start out as a lovely shade of cream and then mature to a dusty rose color. They are called Lenten Roses because their blooms coincide with Lent, making them one of the first flowers to bloom in the late winter garden.
If planted in a nice shady spot with fertile soil, these perennials will spread like wildfire and give both you and your shade garden plenty of early blooming beauty while everything else is still sleeping. And their blooms last for a very long time making them perfect for photo ops, so I think they are just about perfect.
Do you grow Hellebores aka Lenten Roses in your garden?
