    One to be wary of!

    It's an arum.
    I had one in the garden many, many years ago and I let the seed fall.
    Every year since, I've been hoeing up seedlings from all around the garden. They're almost impossible to remove once they start seeding.
    A lovely plant, but incredibly invasive and a tiny bulblet will sprout from well over 1ft below ground
