What’s Not to Love About Hellebores

Join the Milford Garden Club on Mon., Oct 14, 10:30 am for What’s Not to Love About Hellebores with local expert Susan Kierstead. Meeting is held at the First Congregational Church Parish House 10 Union St. free and open to the public.

Hybrid hellebores get their common name,  Lenten rose, from the rose-like flowers that appear in early spring around the Christian observance of Lent. The “blooms” (which are actually sepals that protect the true flowers) last for several months, from February until May, and the foliage is evergreen in all but the coldest regions.
