This plant has appeared in my garden, can anyone identify it for me?

    It’s a hellebore.

    Maybe a cultivated variety or maybe the wild version, Helleborus foetidus. 

    Either way, a nice free gift.
    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.
    If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.

    We've had quite a few threads with people getting some hellebore presents recently  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

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

    Helleborus argutifolius… [argutifolius = sharp toothed leaves]...

    ...seeds around a lot...quite architectural with yellow/green flower spikes...  dead head them if you don't want the future seeding...
    East Anglia, England
