My Lenten Rose

Hello Everyone!
I'm excited about my new plant.  I saw this bloom in a bouquet on a tablescape from a blogger in Sweden at Between Naps on the Porch "Tablescape Thursday" about a year ago.  I have wanted to buy this plant from the first time I saw it.  I also love the name.  'Lenten Rose' It belongs to Hellebore's family.


'Blue Lady'


This is an evergreen perennial that flowers when the weather is cool.  It has an exceptional long blooming season, and is useful in shady woodland spots under the canopy of deciduous trees.


We had a frosty night and the plant got a little frost bite.











 Thank you for visiting My Cozy Corner. 
As you can see I will be busy in my garden for a few days.

  8. I love the color of these. I keep planting more and more blues and purples in my garden. These would look wonderful near my purple plum trees.
    Where are you located in No. Cal?

    (BTW - I'm on the Santa Clara High Facebook Page and you can visit my gardening web site at:
    Urbansaratogagardening.com.
    I need to add some pages and will include a link to your site, if you don't object.
