    Hellebore. No idea on variety. There are hundreds.

  • As H says, many species and hundreds of varieties. That is a plant of the helleborus x hybridus hybrids, some of which enjoy cultivar names, but most of which are just variations within a hybrid species.  Still beautiful, though, and worthy of being given a feed in about a month or so as the flowers fade. Always remove the old leaves before the flowers emerge to avoid any fungal diseases spreading onto the new foliage which comes up after the flowers.

    It should be said, they're on the promiscuous side and it might not even be a named variety. They set seed readily and mix with their neighbours.image

    Beautiful none the less.
