What to do with hellebore

I have several hellebore plants, which I love and which thrive in my area. I cut off the “ugly” leaves at the end of the flowering season but am not sure what to do with the flowers. Should they be removed when they begin to look old, or left behind?

Unless you want lots of ‘baby’ hellebores, deadheading or cutting off the faded flower stems will be beneficial to prevent reseeding. If you don’t mind additional plants popping up next season, you can always leave them, or at least a few, and simply remove and toss the others.
