This evergreen perennial blooms in very early spring/late winter. It is a very long lived plant as perennials go versus the ones that only last a few years.On this cold snowy day close to the end of March, Helleborus Orientalis is resisting the cold and pushing its way through the soil and snow. It is such a great sign of spring happening any day now, especially since it is so late this year. The same plant was in full bloom on March 13 of last year.
