What is black death virus, KHT?

I tried searching the internet for 'black death virus spread by aphids' but I didn't see anything that sounded specific.
Before criticizing someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them you will be a mile away and have their shoes!

Black Death usually is apparent on the veins. If you have ever seen symptoms like this in your hellebore collection then it would be prudent to dispose of infected plants (or better, all plants).

Fortunately, I've never had it; but I've seen it, and it's not pretty. Reports suggest that it is fatal to the infected plants.

EEEEeeeeeeewwwwwwWWWWW!!!!!
Thanks for the pictures and the info. I only have one hellebore which I got quite a few years ago. It seems to do okay, tho it never really grows. Since it blooms and never dies, I'm satisfied. *shrug*
