My Hellebores don't live under oaks, but all are in dry shade and do quite 
well.  Last summer's drought was severe, and I never watered them at all.  I 
would guess you should water them in the first summer to get them 
established.  What I like about them, in addition to the winter-flowering, is 
that deer never touch them, and they make a good-looking foliage mound all 
season.  Auralie.
