Helleborus orientalis 'Blue Lady'

Stories about Lenten Roses are countless. In medieval times, it was considered a weapon against witches, madness and evil spirits. Lenten Roses deserve a place in every garden, not only because of their supposed power, but because they bloom for a long time, early in winter, when the weather is cool and most other flowers are still dormant. They like moist loamy soil with lime and leaf mold. We like them as ground covers for deciduous shrubs, conifers, or broad-leafed evergreens, and when possible plant them in an elevated spot to admire their nodding flowers. They prefer partial shade and are hardy in zones 4-8.

The Blue Lady Lenten Rose (Helleborus orientalis 'Blue Lady') has a deep purplish blue flower.
