Hellebores Niger

Mine flowered like crazy and now it is growing the largest leaves I have ever seen! What's with that? At this rate, it will grow out of its spot. I am also looking for hellebore seeds, any colour but white. Thanks

That is normal and where the large leaves persist and hide the flowers just snip them off as the flowers expand. Some gardeners will remove them as a matter of course when new foliage appears. The so called 'Orientalis' cultivars vary in their evergreen or herbaceous characteristics, also influenced by your locality.
