Q.Hellebore Drooping Downward

Zone 98225 | Anonymous added on April 9, 2022 | Answered

I bought Hellebore plant not long ago, it is taller than Hellebores I had some years ago that did very well. I don’t know what to do, the centers of the plant changed, disappeared almost and several of the stems and flowers bend down to ground of pot. Can you give advice? Is this some of the Black Death? Where I live is now cold and damp and often rainy. I have the plant generally in shade but with some sun. Brought the plant in the apartment now, very concerned. Beatrice

It may be getting too much moisture and not enough drainage. If it were Black Death, you would see black splotches on the leaves and flowers. It is usually a disease of nurseries, not home gardens. These articles should help:
