The flowers of the Lenten Rose (Helleborus orientalis) are shades of white, pink and purple with a greenish tinge. Instead of petals, five large colorful sepals surround a ring of smaller cup shaped petals (called nectaries). The flowers curves downwards, as if they are looking at the ground. It is called a "Lenten Rose" because it blooms around the time of lent. Another species is called the "Christmas Rose" because it blooms at Christmas time.
