Dear Forum Members,

Can you identify this? is it of the 'hyacinth' family? Berries look toxic. I don't want it where it is in the garden, is it easy to remove? can it be transplanted? I have a feeling it's quite a ubiquitous plant in these Isles, having seen it before.

Many thanks!

Too small to see in fact   Can you upload a bigger version?


Arum maculatum - Lords and Ladies aka Cuckoopint.....wild flower probably brought in by the birds. Most things in the garden are poisonous!!


If it has green leaves it's Arum maculatum, lords and ladies, cuckoo pint.

If it has variegated leaves it's Arum italicum marmoratum

It was about 1mm bigger when I enlarged it Steve
