Helleborus (hellebore) by David Nichols

Commonly known as hellebores, members of the genus Helleborus comprise approximately 20 species of herbaceous perennial flowering plants in the family Ranunculaceae, within which it gave its name to the tribe of Helleboreae. Many species are poisonous.

I love hellebores and this is a gorgeous shot. S

Hellebore/Lenten Rose. Perennial. (*SB loves this.*) Easy. Deer-resistant and mostly evergreen, hellebores' divided leaves rise on sturdy stems and may be serrated (like a knife) along the edges. They do best in shade where soil remains moist; some prefer acid or alkaline conditions, depending on variety. Winter interest. 1-4' tall.
