Similarly, you may ask, can I move hellebores?
Moving or splitting established hellebores If you wish to move your plant or it becomes too big, you can lift and divide it in September. Re-plant the crowns in well-prepared soil and keep shaded and moist, but be aware that the new divisions may take a few years to recover.
Furthermore, how do you care for hellebores? Light/Watering
- Hellebores are at their best in evenly moist well-drained soil in partial shade.
- Water well during extended dry periods; they are drought-tolerant once established.
Also, when can I transplant Lenten rose?
Ideally, transplant hellebores during their dormant period in fall. The popular variety lenten rose (Helleborus orientalis), hardy in USDA zones 4 through 9, adapts most readily to transplanting.
Should hellebores be cut back after flowering?
Cut flowering stems and old foliage back as the new growth emerges and flowers fade, from February through April. Or, whenever you get to it. (Hellebores are amazingly forgiving.)
