Helleborus argutifolius 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. It's perfect for growing in a shady birder close to the house, where you can appreciate its late-winter beauty. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it the Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
Grow in moist but well-drained soil in dappled shade. Like all hellebores, Helleborus argutifolius dislikes being moved once established, so should not be divided. Given the right conditions, it will self-seed quite sufficiently to provide replacements.

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
