Is it a mouse's tail?


By Siris

Is it a mouse's  tail? (Arisarum proboscideum (Mouse plant))

Unfortunately the flowers are hidden beneath the leaves, move it out of the way and..... Is it a mouse?

Well done I thought they were tricky?

Not this one Dd, it enlarges as does the pink Dicentra, not like some of the larger tricky Arums. It is not showy, the flowers are tiny and hidden, a bit of a joke!

Yes it does Hb. If we have a young child here, put a spathe in the closed hand, say look what I've got here, open up and Ughh! or Oh,

Yes I find it easy to even in our dry wood it survives and is making a nice clump.
