Hellebore is a surprising and sultry beauty that starts to bloom in the Winter, often during the Christian season of Lent before Easter, which is why its common name is Lenten Rose. We love the subtle coloring, and the downward-leaning blooms that give this plant a moody caste. The evergreen foliage is pretty enough to be welcome in the garden all year round, although the bloom period is quite extended for a Spring bloomer: the blooms open brighter, and then fade gradually into an increasingly subtle hue without wilting or looking spent. To see this beauty poking blooms up through the late Winter snow, none the worse for wear, is enough to make a believer out of anyone.

The Mother of the Bride is a gorgeous double 3" bloom with apricot petals lined with a light pink picotee edge.
