Margie, is the flower photo you refer to the pink one you uploaded to your photo album today? Any chance of getting a clearer photo, those are too fuzzy to see very well and posting it in the topic with the photo of the leaves.

Could you let us know how tall the plant grows, were those leaves a two shades of green, where on the plant do those blooms form?

It looks like it is an Hellebore.

Well the plant is low to the ground and the leaves in the spring was bright and green I didn't know what it was back then, I just knew it was a nice green but it never did bloom I don't know maybe I got it accidently with something else I don't know.It was about 20 inches all the way around the plant. I will try and get a better pic.The thing is the weather here is still a little cold It's going to be about 38 tonight and 50 tomorrow, I went out and covered it tonight, I don't want to loose it to frost.You can see how long the stems are on it and the leaves are about 2 inches wide and 4 inches long.Right now the leaves are brown but they are usually green. Heck if I know. But thank you for your help.I don't know if these pics. are any better, They are ones I had.

It looks just like the hellebore I have in my garden at the moment so I think FlowerFreak is spot on with the ID. Stew Face 2

Margie, if it is an Hellebore than you shouldn't have to protect it from frost. It is a very early bloomer and the ones around here seem to do ok with frost. It should be putting out some new leaves soon also.

We've been having frosts into the 20's and the hellebores do fine. The flowers will soon open. Mine are just opened also and we have had consistent freezing weather. They are also called a Christmas Rose because if you have a mild winter they can start blooming in December and bloom through the winter. Very Happy Hope you are enjoying them.

I was looking to see if I had sent you hellebore starts in 2009 in exchange for the naked lady and glad bulbs. Guess I didn't, but I have definitely given away lots of hellebore starts. They self seed in my yard well. Let me know if you would like more starts.

Margie
The slugs love the naked ladies so didn't do that well. Confused It was probably too cool also. We will see if they come up a third year. The glads have prospered and I have really enjoyed them. Razz When the snow gets off the ground I can send more hellebore starts. I now have them all over my yard (moving seedlings), but they have only multiplied in the front yard so far.

Glad the hellebores did well for you too. PM me your address again when you have time.
