Magyar Posta presents a protected Hungarian flower, the purple lenten rose, on its new domestic registered regular stamp with no value indicated.
Under UV light a yellow-green guilloche pattern becomes visible on the stamp.
The purple lenten rose is found in Hungary in hornbeam and oak forests in the Northern Mountain Range. It flowers in March and April. It is a medicinal plant but highly toxic and today is only used in veterinary science. As all hellebores, every part of the plant is poisonous.
