This species has flowers the colour of 'Granny Smith' apples, set against spiny, evergreen foliage. The flowers appear in winter, and remain on the plants for a long time. Like all hellebores, they dislike being moved once established, so should not be divided. Given the right conditions, they will self-seed quite sufficiently to provide replacements. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it the Award of Garden Merit (AGM).

I've got one of these in my garden, and I'm about to move house. Would it be OK to move it, if I get enough soil around it? It's grown very large, a good 2 feet high.
Got these in same bed as helleborus sternii seem happy waiting to see if they self seed
