Any idea as to what this might grow into?
Found these whilst weeding and have no idea what they are, look a bit like walnuts
I'd guess arum lily too, perhaps one of the more tender types with spotted leaves, judging by the shoot.
If it's arum maculatum, as philippa says it can be very invasive and damn near impossible to get rid of.
Nice to have 1 or 2, but they seed everywhere. Roundup has no effect thanks to the shiny leaves, and even a minute bulbil buried a couple of feet down will shoot up through the heaviest waterlogged clay.
As you may have guessed, I have a problem with this one!Was hoeing again today, but still they keep coming through
Of course if it's not, then don't worry, and either way - Happy Christmas
Found these pictures - I think this might be them
That looks more like Dracunculus vulgaris.
Is that a picture of your plant?
Arum maculatum is the native plant known as Jack in the pulpit, Lords and Ladies and numerous others.
What I know as Arum lily is Zantedeschia aethiopica.
The latest pictures aren't either of those.
Yes at least I think that is what the walnut looking bulbs grow into - been trying to find a picture of it flower - it has dark purple/black coloured flowers that open up from the spike shown in the first picture
Google Dracunculus vulgaris and have a look. Sounds like it and looks like it.
just done that and think you might be right - I know somewhere I have pictures of it in flower - will try and hunt them down
Thanks for your help
Dragon arum or Dracunculus vulgaris lorr, not arum lily
below is arum lily
