I just purchased a helleborus in a 6" pot a month ago, and the leaves are turning yellow. It has many blooms and they look healthy.

Overwatering, underwatering, or nutrient deficiencies can cause plant leaves to turn yellow. Check the soil before you water to make sure it is beginning to dry out, and make sure it is well-drained and has drainage holes in the bottom so the plant doesn't sit in water. On the other hand, if the plant looks wilted and then perks up after watering, you are underwatering it.
