Hellebores are a worthy investment
Hellebores are perennial, generally trouble-free and low-maintenance. Every winter, they will reliably come up to cheer you up in what could be the bleakest or coldest winter days.
To bring out the best in hellebores, I personally would plant them somewhere sunny, warm but protected. South facing or west facing would not do them much harm. Moist, but well drained soil enables hellebores to do well.
Water them well in dry seasons and top up with bonemeal. Before flowering, remove all the big leaves so that sunshine can access the crown. This will help to produce more flowers as well as prevent a virus attacking the plant.
