Arum italicum. Some call it a weed, seeds about a bit. Nice ground cover in winter/spring. Flowers like the native Lords and Ladies.

Identification with these evergreen plants?

It seeds prolifically, yes it will have spread naturally, Native species do if they find a place that suits them, it's lovely but has ideas of world (or garden) domination.

Native species is  a polite term for weed.

Have a look at images of Carex pendula, aka Pendulous Sedge, and see if the flowers look like yours. It's a thug of a plant not suitable for polite company (I grow it but I have a large wild garden). Seeds like mad and gets everywhere, swamps everything, like your Fatsia. If the images match yours, dig it up.

I'd dig it up whatever it is, anything that's taken over to that extent is undesirable

I'm on the ball today Jess 

Ribes can be cut right back after flowering

The berberis can be trimmed a bit if it needs it, I'd leave it alone

Forsythia, after flowering cut some of the older stems right back to base and leave the rest alone. You get a better shape like that.

I can't get a clear view of the yellow one, looks like a pea of some sort
