Thank you everyone, it is even more interesting than I thought. Having looked at as many photos as I can find on here I think it must be the Hard Ruscus as it is definitely not spikey. I can't see any with the flowers underneath in the photos apart from a variety called augustiflolius but that had slimmer leaves, well they are not actual leaves apparently. But, I am sure that you have named the plant for me, so many thanks. And yes, the bouquet was lovely. It was my birthday in mid December and I was given 3 lots of flowers. I always keep them in the cool porch and am down to the last few pinks now plus this foliage which is still as good as new.
