Garden Snippet: Helleborus -Lenten Rose

DSCN1447

 

I spent the day looking through catalogs of perennials, annuals, and vegetable seeds. I’m so happy to have found this job 🙂

Anyway, Helleborus is a genus of perennial flowers, much like this one. Its called “lenten rose” because of its bloom time; early early spring. Its often one of the first things to emerge. So though it can’t out compete an Asiatic Lily on looks and fragrance, it certainly lets everyone know that Spring is coming! One of my favorites!
