Hi, I bought this plant for my pond originally as a marginal bog plant. It failed and I moved it for some strange reason to a very shady spot underneath a rhododendron is thriving like mad, comes back every year and this year surprised me with the strangest of flowers? Trouble is I cant find it on the 'net apart from is similar to the arrow plant (arum something or other)? If any body knows what this plant is I'd be very interested to find out please.




It's Arisarum proboscides commonly known as the Mouse plant. Should be very happy where you have it growing now.
