      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Hellebore or Lenten Rose are a poisonous hardy perrenial that is classed as a late winter/early spring flowering plant. The sap if ingested will cause stomach cramps so care should be taken when planting or dividing. Keep away from children until old enough not to test palatability. Hellebores have wonderful green, white or pink leafy styled flowers which sprout up from three pronged long leaves with soft jaggy egdes. The leaves remain all year round and are a dark almost evergreen shade. They prefer a shady site, with deep well drained soil but can tolerate a sunny position if kept well watered throughout the season. Hellebores come into flower just before daffodils and continue until late spring so are a good choice if you want to provide an early splash of colour to your garden. They can become quite leggy when established and larger plants will need staking. After flowering the spent flowers need cutting back. They can be propagated through division like most hardy perrenials.
