Lenten rose normally blooms in late winter or very early in the spring. The name Lenten Rose comes from the fact that it is normally in bloom around Lent.

Q. What to do with hellebore

I have several hellebore plants, which I love and which thrive in my area. I cut off the “ugly” leaves at the end of the flowering season but am not sure what to do with the flowers. Should they be removed when they begin to look old, or left behind?

Unless you want lots of 'baby' hellebores, deadheading or cutting off the faded flower stems will be beneficial to prevent reseeding. If you don't mind additional plants popping up next season, you can always leave them, or at least a few, and simply remove and toss the others.

Q. Hellebores

Last year I purchased about 5 or so hellebores from a plant site online that sells retail and wholesale very inexpensively, mostly stinking hellebore. I lost all the info and can’t find it online. Does anyone know that sort of site? It had a $ limit of about $45.

I do not know of the site you may have purchased from.

I always recommend checking with your local garden centers, as they usually will stock plants that are most suited for your growing zone.

If you know other gardeners that grow hellebores, asking where they purchased their plants is a great way to connect with sources.

Here is a great article about hellebores!

Q. Lenten rose

Is there anything specific that needs to be done to a Lenten rose before the snow flies?

No special care is required; indeed it is best NOT to cut down the old foliage as it offers some winter protection. In some places, the leaves are evergreen and only the tattered-looking leaves need be pruned off in spring.

Q. lenten rose

I planted a couple of the lenten roses last year and they are blooming now. I see that I planted them to close together and would like to space them out. When/should could I replant them?
Thanks

Lenten rose doesn't like to be transplanted and may not flower the following year as a result. Avoid transplanting during the flowering stage and during hot weather. Keep it moist the entire growing season as it adjusts. I moved one last year and it looks fine; it's too early to say whether it will bloom this year.
