Good evening everyone, I’m wondering if anyone can help me identify these plants please? I believe one is cornus and another is helleborus but I’m not sure what the species is 🤔
2. Helleborus. Maybe Helleborus argutifolius
3. Cornus sp....would like to see what flowers /fruits are like
Your hellebore looks rather like our Helleborus lividus subsp. corsicus
Argutifolius is close too.
I cannot be sure. I think argutifolius is a slightly narrower leaf shape and much taller in stature.
Our one looks like yours and is shorter, by a fair amount. Ours is a foot tall but we garden under large oaks which may stunt growth. The plant as awhole looks chunkier. and paler.
I may be wrong. But if you check both you may find the correct one.
They are the same plant.
Helleborus argutifolius syn Helleborus lividus subsp. corsicus are the same plant.
When you don't even know who's in the team
Middle - bay
Bottom laurel - maybe
