Lenten rose (Helleborus x hybridus) is not a rose, but rather a perennial belonging to the buttercup family. As a group, the Helleborus species and hybrids, including Lenten rose, are known as hellebores. The two-part common name of Lenten rose refers to the plant's bloom season (around Lent) and the rose-like shape of its flower buds.

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.
We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.
