A blooming Hellebore or Lenten Rose may help usher in the Lenten season, which begins today, Feb. 26, with Ash Wednesday. The plants are perennial flowers that generally bloom in early spring, often during the Lent season. If following the 40 days tradition, Lent will end on Holy Saturday, April 9.
