H is for Hellebore

We are at the letter H with Denise Nesbitt’s  ABC Wednesday Meme.

How timely since my Helleborus, Lenten Rose is blooming. I’m not sure exactly what variety mine is. It looks similar to a Spring or Angel variety that I’ve seen on line.

hellebore 012I had to get down on my knees to take the photos because this is a humble plant whose blooms bow their heads to the ground for the most part.

hellebore 008This is the first plant to bloom in the middle or late winter at my house. I love that it is blooming during the Lenten season.

hellebore 010Hellebores are perennial and largely evergreen. They are deer resistant for some of you who have asked in previous posts.

hellebore 011Noteworthy characteristics: Year round foliage persists through shade and snow and is fairly deer and rabbit resistant. Flowers in early spring with daffodils and tulips.

hellebore 005Hope you enjoyed seeing my Hellebore as much as I enjoyed showing it. I’ll be coming around to see your ABC offering for H.

I’m also linking up to Outdoor Wednesday with A Southern Daydreamer.

Our outdoors have been cold and rainy since Saturday. I know a lot of you might still be covered in snow so who am I to complain. Looking forward to this weekend and the opening of MLS Soccer season in the U.S.A. I’ll be at the Seattle Sounders opener against Sporting Kansas on Saturday. What’s new in your neck of the woods?

  5. These are beautiful, Ellen!! I love this particular color! My mom has Lenten Roses and she just loves them; she’s been encouraging me to plant some for myself. I really need to do that.
