is my hellebore dead?
Novice gardener here. I bought a hellebore last year knowing nothing about them except that they're perennials. What I didn't know was that they were evergreens. When the leaves were dying back i just thought the plant was going dormant for the winter. I stopped watering them much and the pot got quite dried out. I'd say the leaves were completely dead a month ago. I just watered the pot again hoping that there is miraculously some life underneath and new foliage will grow again. Is this a lost cause? Has anyone had a hellebore grow back after leaves had completely died?
