Any idea what this one is?  For some reason my dog has started ripping at the stems / insides as they’ve emerged over the past few days

    It looks like an Aurm (cuckoo Pint) all parts of the plant are toxic especially the berries.
    They look impressive, but I've been trying to get rid of a patch for more than 10 years and it's still work in progress.
    I'd suggest dig out asap and make sure you get the bulb(s) out or there will be more next year. The can be very deep in the soil

    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
  • Arum italicum pictum. It does not spread in my clay soil, so if you have clay you might want to keep it.

    Arum italicum is a lovely striking plant but it does spread its seeds all over our garden and we are in heavy clay.
    You can always cut the flowers off just before they start to produce seeds to limit their range.
