Plant Description

The first perennial to flower in our winter garden, Lenten Rose shows its 3 inch white, mauve, or green (the colors intergrade) flowers from January through April. When winters are not harsh, its evergreen leaves retain their dark green perfection through out the year. A mature clump may be 18 inches tall and 2 feet wide. Lenten Rose needs partial to full shade and rich, moist, cool soil. It is wonderful to naturalize in woods. Start your first plants at the top of a slope if you have one so the heavy seeds will tumble downhill, gradually spreading to colonize downwards.
