Please help ID this plant
I found this plant growing by the side of my house. It has broad, strong, stiff leaves with sharp thorns around the leaf edges. Is it a weed?
I'd say it's
aka sea holly.
Sheffield, Derbyshire border.
Did they tear it out with talons of steel
And give you a shot, so that you wouldn't feel?
And washed it away as if it wasn't real?
Thank you Hexagon, Joshua47 and punkdoc for your quick responses. I would happy with the plant turning out to be either
Helleborus argutifolius. I plan to leave it where it is and shall post a photo when it flowers. Thanks again for your help.
