Sorry to disagree but that looks more like Sedum confusum (as used to be, changed its name to something else recently but my brain has not caught up yet).
Typical, one I knew when Nutcutlet didn't and was beaten to it!
Google Aroids and go to Images, there are a lot of them out there.
NC. I was about to suggest S. venosum, but I had to go and do some gardening. Gets in the way of everything!
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!
