I guess this means it is officially spring. I knew hellebores bloomed early, but I didn’t expect to see this when I looked out in the back yard today.

I love lenten roses, they are wonderfully reliable blooming plants for a shady woodland area. They are supposed to thrive in rich and moist humus soil, but this one is growing in shallow hard clay that has not been watered since last fall.

It is very easy to propagate hellebores from seed, but much like peonies, you will have to wait for two or three years to see flowers. They lend themselves well to crossing and creating new cultivars.
