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.

Not sure why its such a tiny picture. sorry!!!
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
That's useful then! Just tried enlarging the display.. That works
Glad you've got an answer
Again apologies for the photo size.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!
aaaah! just been reading up on it. I have heard of the "Arum Lily" before. Thanks again!
I think arum lily is Zantedeschia, summat else altogether
Here it says it's also known as arum lily:
I suppose there's nothing preventing two species being known as arum lily, is there?
Well, that's an example of the fallibility of Wiki
Oh no!!! Don't let's go there again ............................ I don't have the energy in this weather
Oh I quite agree re wiki. its best to triangulate your data... !
