I planted my lenten roses in fall and i thought i was putting them in a pretty shaded spot. Now that spring is coming im worried that the spot is getting more sun than they need. They havent got any buds on them yet still just green but growing. What should i do? Move them or wait it out and see how they do?

They do best in part shade. If the sun is morning sun, they could do just fine. Here in the desert, mine have to be in shade by about 11 am or they fry.

I bet that your area will have plenty of shade after the trees and shrubs leaf out.
I actually have planted hellebore in full sun just to see what happened...
Turns out.... They do fine at my house.

The ones I have in full sun outperform the ones I have in the shade. I think most people consider them shade plants because they do well in shady areas , but here up north they do better in the sun.

I agree with Stone. The best Hellebore I ever grew were in loamy river bottom. They need fast draining highly organic soil.
