Could someone please tell me what this is and if it should be in sun or shade.
Thank you for your help.
That looks like Arum italicum - happiest in moist shade or semi shade
It's one of the arums, probably Arum. italicum. Lovely winter ground cover in shade, Great red (poisonous) berries follow spathe flowers, leaves die off after flowering and reappear for the following winter.
Spreads by seeding with the aid of small rodents, crops up all over the garden
Thank you Dovefromabove and nutcutlet, that is definitely it from looking at the photo, it does get those red berries, I got it from my Mother-in-law, I only have it on pots at the moment and have a tray of loads of little ones, just wanted to check before I plant it, so I goes in the right place. Thank you both for your help.
A lot of people would call it a weed. It spreads and is quite hard to get rid of. But it is a pretty weed for wild and woodland places. I wouldn't plant it in a flower border.
I don't plant it all, it just appears and is the hardest job to dig out.
Thanks for the info, I was just going to put a bit under where I have a tree, it won't be going in any flower borders. Thank you for your help.
That sounds like a good spot for it
Thank you Dove.
