Lenten Rose Characteristics
Lenten Rose are clump-forming, winter-blooming perennials. It is best to locate them in areas with some protection from strong winds and heavy snow. They may remain evergreen in mild winters. Cutting back spent flowers at the stem can encourage new foliage. Propagation can occur from self-seeding or plant division.
Leaf spot and crown rot may occur, but there are few serious disease or insect issues that threaten Lenten Rose
