This is easily one of my favorite late winter to early spring bloomers. The darkest of purple color is so unique and it always reminds me that warm weather is just moments away. Single blossoms in shades of dark purple to almost black are an ideal complement to beds and borders. Call them hellebores or Lenten Roses, but their captivating charm is the same.









They’re easy to care for and will live happily in your shaded areas during the cool season.
