Commonly known as hellebores, the Eurasian genus Helleborus consists of approximately 20 species of herbaceous or evergreen perennial flowering plants in the family Ranunculaceae, within which it gave its name to the tribe of Helleboreae. Despite names such as “winter rose”, “Christmas rose” and “Lenten rose”, hellebores are not closely related to the rose family (Rosaceae). Many hellebore species are poisonous.
Gardening is the practice of growing and cultivating plants as part of horticulture.

Gardening is considered by many people to be a relaxing activity. – wikipedia
