Lenten Rose Helleborus orientalis The foliage is evergreen, and the flower put on a show for months after opening. Hellebores have no serious pest problems (not even deer). They only need watering during prolonged dry spells. Generally grown as shade plants, but will tolerate full sun with adequate water. They pair well with Virginia bluebells, Lungwort, Columbine, and Bleeding Heart.
