Heya! We've found this in our garden amongst our fushias recently and have no idea what it is, could any one please help us identify it?

Many thanks!

I agree: they seem to be the seed-pods of Arum italicum Italian Arum (Arum italicum)

I agree Here's a link to the main plant entry for Arum. Arums (Arum) While Arum italicum is one of the most frequently cultivated in the genus, many species have a similar fruiting head. We might be able to ID the species if you're able to post photos of leaves this fall.
