Arisarum proboscideum

Does anyone else on the forum grow this almost amusing little aroid ?
With leaves only reaching around 6" high , this unassuming little plant slowly spreads in sun or shade , wet or dry on any soil .My plant grows on a dryish low wall .
The alpine specialist Anna N.Griffith describes the flowers eminently in her book as " a small green arum-like spathe ,  terminating in a long curved tail giving the appearance of a colony of small mice disappearing into the leaves" .
Oh well , thought you'd all like to know that !!
