Description of specimen
I have positively identified it as Arum italicum. I have been identifying plants for over 20 years.
Arum italicum aka Lords and Ladies is located in the Clackamas County right away next to 6111 SW Seville Lake Oswego OR 97035. It is large clump. I am Ruthanne Carothers that live at that address. Our .56 acre is considered a native habitat by the National Wildlife Federation and Portland Audubon and is filled with natives plants some that are considered uncommon or endangered The invader is very close to our fence and I do not want it invading my yard.
