If you can identify it for me, please do! It was almost unnerving to see it at this time of year, when other gardens are still piled with snow. This garden also has a budding rhododendron. Spring is in the preparation stages, anyhow.
Update: Christmas rose, also known as hellebore! Thanks, Teri and CK for enlightening me! It must have survived and kept blooming through all the snow, amazing.
