LENTEN ROSES FOR THE GARDEN
The autumn, more specifically, the time between September and November, is a good time to plant Lenten Roses. At that time, the hardy perennials don't flower, but they have already initiated flowers deep down in their leaf axils during the summer and will produce them in the following spring. However, Lenten Roses can also be planted in the garden in spring, if the ground not frozen. They thrive in a place in the shade, for example near deciduous woody plants.
Lenten Roses are ideal for large planters and window boxes. For more details, go to the Uses section.
