Hi, I had this plant from my mothers garden some years back. It’s grown quite large now.
I need to get it out of my front garden as I’m changing to veg frowning there.

1) Could anyone tell me what it is please?
2) Need to relocate it. Was thinking of planting it in the park or the woods, or possibly my back garden which had minimal sun. What do you recommend?

Thanks

Looks like a bergenia/elephant ears/pigsqueeck. They prefer sun but will hold out in shady areas as well. Deep shade, i don't think will work.
