Hellebores flower in formal gardens

In Bear Creek Park's formal gardens, white and purple clumps of hellebores are bravely in bloom. These flowers are sometimes called by misleading and contradictory names: Christmas roses or Lenten roses.

Early and rugged, these hellebores are fully in flower. Unfortunately they're a bit shy, and keep their faces pointed downward.

Hellebores are now fashionable houseplants. Plants can purify the air in your home, advises David Suzuki, but Robert Pavlis disagrees.
