The beautiful Lenten rose is a winter jewel in the garden.  This delicate looking flower is in fact a very hardy perennial.  It blooms when most of our garden in sleeping, pushing through frozen ground to bear exquisite blooms that last for months.  The foliage is typically deep green and leathery enabling it to stand up to extreme weather.  There are also varieties available with unique patterns on their foliage for added interest. 

This lovely perennial thrives in partial sun and moderately moist soil and is ideal as an understory planting beneath conifer as well as, deciduous trees and shrubs.  It is a wonderful companion plant for ferns, epimedium and other woodland staples. 

Many bloom colors are available from pale yellow to deep plum and a variety of shades of pink to white with delicate freckles on their petals. 

Stop by the nursery to choose the hellebore that is right for you, your landscape or your winter container arrangement. 

During these cold and slumbering months there are still tasks to consider staying on top of in your garden.

The moist cool temperatures bring out the slugs and snails.  Stay on top of controlling their population with safe and effective, Sluggo or Sluggo Plus.
Control troublesome insects such as scale, mites, aphids, mealybugs and leafmines by getting their eggs in dormancy.  We recommend using All Seasons Dormant Oil Spray.  Applying this product when branches are bare and our gardens are sleeping will provide you with a leg up when the garden thaws and awaken, reducing the population of damaging insects in your garden.
