Ruscus. Common names I've seen include mouse ear and butcher's broom.
There are several species:
Golden Dead Nettle (Lamium galeobdolon 'Variegatum')

I think @purpleinopp posted the wrong link and probably meant this one:

It does look like a type of ruscus but I don't know which one.

The most common one, ruscus aculeatus, has a different flower and it grows on top of the leaf, this one which I haven't been able to identify has a different looking flower on the bottom of the leaf.

Yes I pasted the wrong thing, sorry about that. I think the previous thing I pasted was still there and the Ruscus link I though I had copied didn't "stick." Sorry, I did not notice when I clicked submit. I'd meant to paste this:

IDK what the distinguishing features are between the various species.
