**Hellebore**, also known as the Christmas or Lenten rose, is a winter-blooming perennial favored for its ability to bloom during the coldest months. These flowers bring both color and hope to the otherwise barren winter gardens.

Hellebores have evergreen leaves and produce cup-shaped flowers that can range from white and green to pink, purple, and even near-black. Their blooms can be single, double, or star-shaped, depending on the variety. They're also deer and rabbit resistant, making them a desirable choice for many gardens.

Hellebore symbolizes serenity, tranquility, and peace. Its ability to bloom in the midst of winter represents resilience and the enduring spirit.

Hellebores thrive in partial to full shade in well-draining soil. Once established, they are relatively drought-tolerant but prefer consistent moisture. Removing old leaves in late winter can help showcase the flowers better.

Hellebores are a popular choice for shaded gardens, woodland settings, and as ground covers. Their winter blooms make them valuable additions to the garden, especially when few other plants are in flower.
