Lenten Roses

Today is Good Friday, Passover has begun and the season of Lent is almost over as Easter is day after tomorrow.  So what does all of that have to do with today’s post? Well, the name of these flowers and the timing of their appearance; Lenten Roses.

Lenten roses are a perennial belonging to the buttercup family and are not really roses.  They get their name in two parts from their blooming season (around Lent) and the blooms having a rose like shape.  They come in a variety of colors and like partial shade.

They were a new species to me when I moved here to Ohio and now I look forward to them every spring along with the other early blooms of spring.  Have you ever seen Lenten Roses before or have them growing near you?

Stay safe – Teri
