What size is this?
Certainly an aroid of some description. Have you sown seeds of Biarum? Not quite dark enough for Dracunculus though, but it could be.
I always do, it saves them trying to make seed.
The trouble is there are dozens of forms of Phildelphus, go to Pershore College and look at the National Collection. They are almost identical to the non-specialist.
And the dark form, Firecracker is even worse. another 5 years of weed killing and it still comes up.
Not in my garden. In fact we lost 2 of them in the hard winter a couple of years back. The surviving ones are still just single stem shrubs after 18 years.
In mine too.............the Council compost bin!
Another of those plants that I spend as much time weeding out as I can spare. I comes up everywhere in my Rock garden and smothers the more desirable plants. Terrible stuff.
Now is always a good time
Spade, garden fork, riddle to begin with.
There are no known hazards listed.
