This is currently attempting a take-over of my front border. I've been here 6 years and definitely didn't plant it! It was sort of confined to a corner where I wasn't bothered about it, but since last year it has been popping up everywhere.

Wild Arum aka Lords and Ladies.
I'm fighting it too 😟! I'm going to try weed killer next as impossible to suppress by digging out as the tiniest piece will root.

I think it’s this.

Oh hell I think you're right! It might be the Arum italicum (or however it's spelled) which is the cultivated version. Either way the damn thing is poisonous. Time to get the weed killer out!!

I feel your pain.
