Helleborus niger 'Snowbells'
Common name: Lenten Rose
Semi-double, pure white flowers measure 2½-3" across, with five petals and additional petaloids at the center. Unlike H. hybridus types, these flowers are naturally side-facing versus downward-facing, so you can enjoy the bright white flowers with little effort. Because this is a Helleborus niger, the bloom season will be much earlier than hybrid varieties , blooming up to a month earlier, depending on your hardiness zone. Use in winter and holiday combination containers with evergreens or enjoy it in the landscape.
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 it is at home.
