On plant Arisarum proboscideum



Lawsy! I can't find any info on control of the plant!
I would first try to dig it out. If the rhizomes prove to come up from such small pieces that that's impractical, I would paint the leaves with professional grade RoundUp, taking all due precautions--gloves, mask, etc.--and being careful not to spill it on the ground. It could be a long job, from the sound of it.

Interesting, it grows slowly in our garden!

It's a different way to be over-run by mice! :-) At least your biscuits and cheese are safe.
