Plant ID please

Today whilst cutting back snowberry in a hedge I found this ?  Could anyone id it please.  It looks familiar but no idea what it is called. 

Also would it be suitable in a hedge or should I remove it.  It is currently on a boundary fence line.

     Ruscus aculeatus, butchers broom. It's a shade plant and can join a native hedgerow though it won't be tall.

    If it is a self fertile form it will have lovely long lasting red berries as well.
