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.
Walk out to winter, swear I'll be there.
Chill will wake you, high and dry
You'll wonder why.
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.
