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.

  • I knew someone would recognise this plant. Thanks for the advice.

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

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    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.
