Mine don't fall over till the seed heads form, these are very heavy and sometimes the stem breaks with a spectacular crack

I have a strain of white orientalis that flowers very early every year Verdun. I bought it in flower from a wayside stall years ago, in the autumn. It flowers any old time and has crossed with others which have also become disorientated in flowering time. Not too keen on summer flowering hellebores, doesn't seem right. But as long as I have plenty now I'll put up with it (or cut the flowers off if it really offends)

Not easy here. 

I've rarely kept one more than 2, maybe 3, years and have only had one re-flowering.

My final try is just a few leaves this year.  

No more, the other species satisfy my hellebore needs

argutifolius is aka holly leaved hellebore and the leaves are quite holly like (with a little imagination)

I'll have a 2nd look Dove, the leaves looked like foetidus to me, corsicus/argutifolius broader and jagged edges.

We'll get a 3rd opinion soon
