These flowers happily bloom on our patio for most of the winter in the coldest of weather.

@Jypyä Pop: Yes, it is sometimes referred to as a Christmas Rose. In my opinion, the Hellebore is not familiar to people outside of Europe. Thanks for commenting.

i'm unfamiliar with these flowers, but intrigued

i typically grow pansies all winter, but this past fall was just too busy for us to get them planted

next year we'll have blooms to cheer the winter days
