10 images

The hellebore’s moment of flowering glory is also its bane, for who has not, at some point, referred to Helleborus niger or Helleborus orientalis as a Christmas or Lenten rose? However, while it would not be unusual to see these beautiful low-level-growing plants in flower at Christmas time or even during Lent, the hellebore is not, in fact, a rose.
