Plant of the Week April 4, 2021 - Hellebore or Lenten Rose (Helleborus orientalis)

Hellebores are semi-evergreen, clump-forming perennial plants which flower in late winter or very early spring. The flowers can remain on the plant for a month or so after blooming. Helleborus orientalis prefers shaded conditions, preferably in soil which does not dry out, so is an ideal plant for a woodland garden or a north-facing border.
