Sticky substance and white flies on Helleborus

Most of my many helleborus are affected by sticky leaves and whitefly. Have sprayed with bug spray.

On plant Helleborus Niger



You are doing the right thing getting those aphids treated because you may next get 'sooty mould' if you don't. It will grow on the sticky sap coating on the leaves.

Yep, two of mind regularly suffer from this and will wilt badly if not sprayed.. Don't spray in sunny weather, I ruined mine for the year by spraying them in the day, (stupid me)
