you'd soon know if they were macrorhisum - usually pale pink flowers and the leaves have a very pungent smell and they spread by surface rhizomes. It comes into its own around this time as it has the most beautiful autumn foliage.
I also have hellebores around the base of an apple tree - they self seed prolifically and if you opt for ajuga (bugle) you could mix it with London Pride (I'm sure somebody else will remember it's latin name).
That's a very colourful display of what you have got - lovely.
