Cyclamen always die back in the summer. Some flower in the autumn without leaves, then the leaves come and die back in spring. C, coum has leaves now, will flower in a couple of months, then the leaves will die back.

Sarcococcas are lovely little winter flowering shrubs, good scent too.

I'd 'acquire' some seedlings of the hellebore in your father's garden, (corsicus?) They're different  and it all adds to a lively winter garden.

There's a little cyclamen too, C. coum,  flowers right in the middle of winter with the snowdrops.

Verdun said leave niger and I think he said ericsmithii as well. Winter Moonbeam is a cultivar of eric. What an ugly name for a lovely plant, ericsmithii

Yes zebrina, I'd cut a few stems right back rather than shortening them. You'll end up with a better shaped shrub

what's still flowering in your garden?

Thanks all for the reassurances re Fatsia hardiness. I'll  give one another try.

Or Jasminum x stephanense a cross between officinalis and beesianum. Could it seed and produce one of it's parents? The original pic looks like officinalis

I may have got the name wrong, the jasmine I'm thinking of has pairs of leaves right up the stems.
