    Hello,
    My husband and I just moved into our new home in Woodburn, Oregon and our backyard is overrun with this plant. I dug one up and its a bulb plant... finally got it out after digging and digging and digging. It looks like a plant that means business and wants to stay... I'd like to have a say in it as well. If anyone can help me get the name of this plant and any ideas on how to 'co-exist?' with them, please let me know. Heres a picture or two:

    Arum italicum looks like some leaves show the mottled variegation similar to the variety 'Pictum' here in the UK

    Could be a Trilliumof some sort, not sure what cultivar. What is the flower like? The leaves in the background are a different plant, yes?

    Some form of asarum? My first guess is wild ginger...

    It's the arum. Wild ginger has differently shaped leaves.
