Hellebores are also called Lenten Roses or Christmas Roses. Their foliage is evergreen and their lovely blooms are the first to appear in spring with daffodils and crocuses.
They perform best planted in groups in a woodland or in a shady border, are deer and rabbit resistant, and are somewhat drought tolerant.
Late summer to late fall.
Hellebores love the shade and need full to partial shade to thrive.
Hellebores appreciate a compost rich soil or an undisturbed woodland soil.
Allow 18-24 inch spacing.
