Help identifying plants.

Hi

Please help this novice gardener! I recently bought three plants from a local shop. None of the plants had any indentification, and the shop staff had no idea what they were. I have tried to find out online, and drawn a complete blank. I have posted photographs of each plant with some information about them on Photobucket:

If anyone could let me know what they are, I would be so grateful!

    Hi Bonnie, the first one's a hellebore, the second looks like it's posssibly a scabious, the third looks very familiar but haven't a clue what it is - it reminds me of a peace lily, most often grown as a houseplant but I'm sure I'm wrong.

    Hope you don't mind me updating link for you.

    Hmmm, I fear I can't agree TDC, the stem doesn't look like crocosmia to me.

    Changed my mind re scabious, but looks so familiar!

    Hi Bonnie2

    The 3rd looks a lot like some sort of palm plant. Reminds me of of indoor Parlour Palm

    Thanks for updating my link figrat!  image

    I had a feeling that the first one was a Hellebore. I have another two, but it didn't look anything like them, so I wanted to be sure. I should say that the possible Crocosmia is the result of 3 bulbs planted together. I have no idea how they would look seperately.

    I have doubts about no.1 being a Helebore now - something is not quite right image
