Hi, new to gardening, and new to Washington State.... found a Beautiful plant growing in my new backyard, and no one here seems to know what it is.
I appreciate any comments! Thanks in advance,
Jeff

additionally, a neighbor suggested this may be the plant the previous owner planted in order to keep moles away! LOL I have no clue.....

These are seed pods. As there is no foliage, my guess would be Lycoris. Maybe? Anyone? I can't find an image for the seed pods.

Arum sp..Arum italicum maybe....Other Common Names: Italian lords and ladies, Italian Lily, Cuckoo’s Pint
Listed as a noxious weed in your area.


These are the seed pods.
The leaves would have been earlier in the year.

See many images at end of link.

That's interesting. Every picture I found has foliage still present.

Have a look at the link I added above.

There are at least 5 pics showing just the fruits and no leaves.

Looks like Arum.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
