Need help with identification

we have this plant in our garden, and despite us both being keen gardeners, and the plant being familiar, we can’t quite remember what this plant is! Please help us identify it :)

    Arum italicum pictum ; attractive but very invasive !
    Some show varying degrees of variegation .

    Arum italicum indeed.  Not welcome in my garden .
    You are invited to a virtual visit of my garden (in English or in French).

    Disagree. A lovely plant, if kept on a leash.
    There are ashtrays of emulsion,
    for the fag ends of the aristocracy.

  • I have it and can't get rid of it, in amongst all the rose's so can't spray it,

    Someone I know has a large clump of this in a huge old terra-cotta pot ; very striking variegation especially when the crimson berries appear .

    We’ve got it around a log pile in the little natural planting behind the wildlife pond. Love it.
