I have featured the Lenten Rose in several Post this Winter. The first bloom I posted was on December 24th, 2008. These lovely low growing flowers are a delight and once established require almost no maintenance. I appreciate them because the local Deer population does not bother them. You can note the seed pods in the center of the blooms in the three pictures displayed above. These flowers have provided gardening pleasure for three months.
I would urge all Gardeners in Georgia to try this plant. The Lenten Rose was the 2005 Perennial Plant of the Year.
