This is a photo blog post showing some images of the two Lenton rose (hellebore) plants growing in my yard. This is a new plant for me to grow, but I love the fact that the flowers form even before all my snow is gone. That is in early to mid April. It’s a pleasant thing to find flowers blooming after a long, cold winter.
The flower is unique and comes in a variety of colors. The light green flower is coveted by brides for their wedding bouquets. Finding green flowers in nature is always a treat, but the light pink and spotted varieties are stunning as well.
This is one plant that I would like to have more of in my garden. This perennial is easy to grow and blooms profusely. As you can see, the leaves are nice and green even after being covered in snow all winter! After the flowering stops, the green leaves continue to grow all summer and add interest to the landscape.
I’ll keep my eyes open for other varieties when I visit the local nursery this year.
