I have bought a new house and noticed this plant coming through. I seem to recognise the foliage but I'm not sure what it is. I don't think its a weed any help would be appreciated.
It looks like a hellebore but I can't be sure
Think you're right, Ladybird4. Looks like Helleborus niger, the Christmas rose.
Now you have said that its exactly what it looks like. Thanks I knew I recognised it
would there not be more foliage at this time of year
No cairnsie, there wouldn't be. It looks right for the time of year.
