Common Name: Lenten Rose
Colour: Maroon to Wine Red

Size: 6" round pot

Note: Our helleborus supply this year was great, large roots. This time of year they are starting to go dormant, meaning they are losing their leaves. Because they bloom so early (sometimes in late March if the snow is gone), they need to rest and put all their energy into the roots for next season. After they go dormant they usually send up more leaves late in the season. Still worth buying now for that spring bloom.

Helleborus 'Rome in Red' bears 3-4”, single rich maroon to wine red flowers.Hellebores are the harbingers of spring, blooming for six weeks or more beginning in late winter. They are often flowering during the Christian season of Lent, from which they get their common name, Lenten Rose. This is the perfect plant for naturalizing in moist, woodland areas where its extensive root system will spread as far as it is allowed.
