Your Daily Dose of Natural Beauty, courtesy Advertiser Zenith Holland Nursery – Heavenly Hellebores resplendent in tone-on-tone green:
Today’s image features a lovely green Hellebore, also known as “Lenten Rose” due to the fact that they often begin blooming right around the beginning of the liturgical season of Lent. Certainly an appropriate subject in this, a Holy Week which will stand out as one of the more unusual on record. The blooms communicate an almost bashful appearance as they demurely nod downward. To capitalize on this natural growth pattern, many gardeners plant them on hillsides or in higher terraces so that they can be enjoyed from below.
Hellebores come in a variety of shades including pinks, yellows, variegated white/pink up to deep burgundy shades. They often bloom from March to May and afterward offer evergreen leaves through summer. They are low maintenance perennials, who return each year to chase the winter blues.
You can learn more about the wide variety of Hellebores on Zenith Holland Nursery’s own blog;
