Answer: Helleborus niger, or Christmas Rose, is an elegant plant growing to 1 foot tall and 1 1/2 feet wide. Leaves appear in groups and seem to rise directly from the soil. The plant thrives in shade and needs alkaline soil and regular water. I suspect your plant is unhappy in its current location with morning sunshine. Move it to a shady spot, keep the soil moist but not soggy wet, and it should regain its health.
