I would love to add some of the colored variations of Lenten rose to my garden, but they are rather pricey...does anybody have some seeds or 'babies'?
I have just joined, so I haven't added what I have available to the website due to limited time...would be willing to discuss with anyone who has some available.

The Latin name is Helleborus. There are several varieties, including orientalis, niger, foetidus etc. H. orientalis is commonly known as "Lenten Rose"

Here's a link to the H. orientalis entry in the plants database for more info and a photo:
