Hellebore Black Death

19 years ago

Black Death is a virus many claim to be on the increase. It is virus that has no cure, once signs of the virus are apparent the hellebore die within 8 months.

I have heard reports that this virus is wide spread in the UK has moved into Mainland Europe, has been found in Australia, Canada and is present in the USA. It may be present were ever hellebores are grown in great numbers.

Will this be the hellebore demise? Or is this just myth, a virus spreading that kills hellebores with no known cure but to destroy any hellebore that looks infected?
