Help identify this plant?

Hi, I'm new to the forum. I took this plant from my late grandmothers garden last year as I liked the shape and structure of the leaves. Over the last 3 weeks or so it has come into flower, but I'm still unsure what it is. Any help with this identification would be helpful as I can then look to give it a permanent place in my garden. Thanks Richie.

    Its a nice double hellebore  garden hybrid(oriental type) You can cut the old leaves that are lying flat off. Plant in a semi shaded position so that it doesn't get full sun in summer.
    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3

    That's a cracker - look after it and enjoy it  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    Hi, I could be wrong but it looks like the one I have in my garden given to me as a present. If I'm correct it's Helleborus x Hybridus "Double Ellen White Spotted". If I'm wrong I hope someone can tell us both what it is.
