Looks like Primula sp.

Jacaranda Tree

Jacaranda....A fabulous tree for hot counties.

Sadly it will never survive a British winter outside and  you will never get  it large enough or get enough  sun/heat to ripen the wood to get flowers.

At best you can keep it going indoors until you have no more room for it.  or it dies.

Could Someone ID this please ?

I agree that the leaf shapes are very similar...however I think you will find that the light areas of the leaves for Arum italicum always follow the veins. See...

Plantnut...your leaf shows random splashes of white.

Compare this to Zantedeschia albomaculata leaves which are different in the markings.

OK.  A pic to show the fruits might have helped with id.

Small fruits...try to cut one in half...round the equator.

If it has a stone in the centre it will be a plum, cherry, sloe ...Prunus sp.

Might it be a cherry plum..Prunus cerasifera?

It could be a crab apple.

If it looks like this inside...

Then it is a crab  apple...Malus sp?

Prunus padus leaf veins are different from those shown by Leighwarner.

Note the scalloped veins  parallel ,near leaf edge.

Odd ....half my message vanished from above.

At this time of year it would be full of small round fruit..sloes.

I think it is Prunus sp...but would not like to say which one.

The leaves of Prunus spinosa are actually quite small.

 Quote wiki...."The leaves are oval, 2–4.5 centimetres (0.79–1.77 in) long and 1.2–2 centimetres (0.47–0.79 in) broad, with a serrated margin."

The main feature is the thorns which I cannot see. See link...
