Buttoneer was at my house a couple of months ago and told me the name of this plant, but I didn't write it down and now I have forgotten. Does anyone else know the name?

Ruby, The Arum leaves will die off and it will put up a spike of red berries. So when you start loosing the leaves don't worry.

Oh yeah Holly...I have had a couple of these in the garden for a few years and am aware of the berries. They have really grown in to large monsters now and I even have another one in my front garden which I don't remember planting. Actually, I don't remember planting any of the three. hahaha

Hope that you and yours are all doing fine.

They are invasive for me.
I have dug them out, pulled them out, cut them down and overplanted them and they are still here and spreading.
