Helleborus orientalis, also known as Lenten Rose, Christmas rose, is a stunning perennial flowering plant native to Greece and Turkey. It gets its name from its early spring flowering during Lent. This evergreen plant has glossy green palmate leaves with 7-9 leaflets and leathery texture. The cup-shaped flowers have yellow stamens and bloom in late winter and spring in groups of 1 to 4 on thick stems. Although all parts of the plant are poisonous, it is a favorite choice for gardens and landscapes due to its broad array of cultivated varieties with different colors, including white, green, pink, maroon, purple, and spotted. The Lenten Rose is well-suited for shaded or part-shaded positions in soil rich in humus. With its captivating beauty and hardiness, Helleborus orientalis is a must-have for any gardener.
