Does anyone recognise this plant ?

This plant has been growing in my garden for the last year or so,  I really don't know what it is.   I rather huge and attracts the biggest of all bees.   Can anyone tell me what it is.

    Hellebore
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....



    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
  • I was inclined to dig it up but the bees really love it so its here to stay.   Unless someone  advises otherwise.

    They're great plants - all sorts of types. That's argutifolius - the Holly leaved one  :)

  • Many thanks,  I have just googled other varieties.   Will keep it in that case.

    Hellebores are great in that they flower early spring and are brilliant as you said for bees but do be careful that you don't let them all seed as you will then plants all over your garden. Keep some to seed where they wont take over an area.
