I really cannot thank everyone enough for your help in identifying these plants, weeds, bugs, etc. I don't know what I'd do without y'all.

This one has leaves that look like a hydrangea but blooms that look knd of like a dogwood. My neighbor came across it at a friend's and took a cutting. She's trying to root it and asked if I could find out what it is. Thanks again for your help.

Hellebore ?
Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.

Yes, Helleborus (or Hellebore). Common name is "Lenten Rose" - that seems like an appropriate plant for today. Smiling To propagate them, either divide the rhizome in the fall or grow them from seed. A cutting won't work for you. Sorry!

Now is an excellent time to find them in the nurseries.

Wow! With my neighbor's faith, she'll probably WILL them to grow from a cutting! lol. But I'll break the news to her. Lenten Rose is so appropriate not only for the season but for her as well. People give her plants all the time and she has been sharing them with me ... the last two of which were "Angel Wings" Begonia and "Crown of Thorns." Amazing!

Thanks y'all! Appreciate it. =)
