Plant ID question

Asked November 24, 2019, 12:04 PM EST

Hi there you lovely people - I'm curious to find out more about this plant which is taking over my garden. What is it, is it safe to remove (someone mentioned it might be poisonous), what are the best strategies to eradicate it? The largest leaves are about the size of a large hand, pictures of root & leaf are attached. Many thanks! Marcus

Thank you for your question, Marcus. No photos attached!

I did some more research this morning and asked my relatives - pretty sure it's Italian Arum.

Sounds like I need to call the ghost busters?

You’re right! I suspected it might be. Very invasive.
