I've googled and you are correct, thanks so much Amy, I can name it now and add to my plants, I have the variegated leaf one too, very invasive.

Nice one. A lot of these grow wild in a local wood here, too.

Hi David, I would imagine they've gone berserk in the wood. I have the variegated leaf one too, that's nice.
