Several of my Lenten Roses have collapsed from the center. The leaves pull out easily. They’ve been in the same place for several years. We sometimes get moles/voles in the yard but I don’t see tunnels. Help!

    The symptoms you describe sound like hellebore black death…
    Eventually the plants die.


    In my experience… hopeless…
    Nothing can be done except not planting them again.
