Here they grow all together. Does anyone have an idea what might be wrong with the sickly one? Is it a gonner? I believe so but I wonder just what has caused this?? Ihave never had a hellebore do this before. I would appreciate any ideas or suggestions.

Hellebore Rx Needed
Just take a look at this sad sack. It is one of three Hellebores I moved last summer. They were merely existing in their previous spot so I moved them here near the blackberries. They appeared to be doing well until this week when I noticed this one lying down on the job. As the tag says it is Blackthorne Strain Lenten Rose. I don't know if this would help with a diagnosis. The other two look quite happy about themselves. One has a fern that is trying to encroach upon its turf. This I can easily deal with but it is the sickly one I am worried about. I figure I should be making funeral arrangements for it. Compost or dump? I wonder if what it has is catching?
