It is outside Amy. Not very obvious flowers, I had to part the leaves to see them, only the 'tail' was sticking up.

Oh my goodness mines not even through the soil yet !

Mine is quite rampant, Simbad, had 2 clumps but reduced it to one, but find bits of the rhizome all over the place and Lords and Ladies Arum, which I presume the birds bring in.

I looked back at my pictures after seeing this as I thought maybe I'd lost mine phew mine didn't flower till April , I've had it 6 or 7 years now and it's made a nice clump but not really rampant , yet lol.
Oh the Lords and Ladies is a pain here loads of it luckily its only in the wood.

Mouse Tail not really an Arum, but the rhizomes are similar. Think I might have weeded out my Arum italicum pictum by mistake, or it is slow showing.

I'm terrible for that I have to put labels all over in the wood where plants are or I forget, I've been splitting more snowdrops today and almost dug up my lovely blue corydalis the label was covered by leaves.
Hope your Arum shows up!

So do I, it was near my Erythonium, under the Pear tree which I removed, to be replaced by a Veratrum nigrum, which I bought last Autumn to go into the Pear place.
Ps, are your Corydalis still dormant? The pink Cory. I bought is not showing but your Bronze Beauty did not go dormant at all.

24 Feb, 2016

 

Yes they're all still dormant except Bronze Beauty that's evergreen here too .

25 Feb, 2016

 

That's good yours are still dormant, cause I haven't done well with most Corydalis in the past.
