Such a Indian spotting...http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/767...
I think it may be an arum, thank you Lars.
I found it at a place called boxer wood gardens. I doubt it is a native species to Virginia.
Yes it could Lars, which is why the habitat is important, if found in the deep woods highly unlikely it is Arum, but if found in someones garden that is another story.
Might also be an Arum - compare with this European species: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/127...
I would agree with Jake, you can check this link to see if those are the leaves you saw. http://www.flickr.com/photos/8334337@N03...Additionally, the habitat portion of a spotting can be very important in determining species, consider including this in the future.
It had big giant leaves like a foot or so wide. I guess I should have took some pictures of those too.
Any pictures of the leaves, if there were some present? Might be Jack in the Pulpit (Arisaema triphyllum)
