Dug up this brute.

We were talking about this plant on another thread last week,  I know what it is but has anyone else seen such a big monster?  Something alien,  something mummified. It’s got two arms.

    Friend or foe?

    It’s got two arms of equal length, both planted uppermost,  roots at the bottom and a long tap root.  The whole thing was below the ground.
    It is a friend, a beautiful delicate sweet scented flower. 
    Of course, I suppose I could have lost the flower over the cold winter and that is indeed an alien. 😀
    I’ve got some more in another place that I want to dig up and refresh the soil.

    Datura?
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Not Datura. Not such a big plant as that,

    Could it be a Solanum vine?
