Hellebores - black spot?

Posted: 18/05/2016 at 09:04

Is it black spot or helleborus black death? , which has distorted leaves as one of its symptoms. I had one plant that I bought from wyevale with it. I dug it up and took it back before my other plants were affected. It is caused by a virus transmitted by aphids. It is also known as hellebore net necrosis virus

I wish I could enlarge it. My first thought was Spiranthes sp. or ladys tresses orchid.

Any ideas what this is?

I don't see why not, but the question is Why? It keeps well . I store it it in washed out milk bottles or fizzy pop bottles.

Cut and come again

I only cut the leaves off at the base of the leaf. You have to leave the growing point in the centre of the plant.

Tree, bush and bulb ID

Not sure of the tree. The shrub is Choisya ternata 

The bulb is a corm, the new one stacks on top of old ones. Its possibly a Crocosmia. lucifer in particular has big corms. How big is it , its possibly a crocus if it is dying down now, as opposed to shooting up.
