Helleborus, also known as Christmas roses or Lenten roses, is a genus of perennial flowering plants in the buttercup family. They are native to Europe and Asia, with most species found in the Balkans and western Asia. Some species have also been introduced to North America and other parts of the world as ornamental plants. They are known for their large, showy flowers that bloom in shades of white, pink, and purple, often during winter.
The name "Helleborus" is derived from the Greek words "helios," meaning "sun," and "bora," meaning "food," which could be a reference to the plant's ability to bloom in the winter when the sun is low in the sky. The plant is also associated with the Christian holiday of Christmas and the Lenten season, which is the period of fasting and repentance in the Christian church leading up to Easter. The plant's common names, "Christmas rose" and "Lenten rose," refer to this association.
