This plant is in a pot alongside an orchid. The unknown plant seems to be evergreen.....have never noticed a flower previously...the flower is maybe 85mm has a slight odour. Thanks, folks. (Y)

It looks like a variety of Arum Lily, ?

My first thought was an arisaema of some sort, but I can't find one with that foliage.

Thanks, Yvonne.
Here are another two pics...the flower is more a burgundy colour than the seen in the photo (different camera).

I feel sure if it was a Calla lily I would recognise it....as I have had them previously. Thanks, Yvonne. The pot (15cm?? wide) is jammed packed with this unknown plant. Oh well, a mystery...
Don't be afraid to colour outside the lines.

I wonder if it could be an anthurium of some form. There are some that are very different from the usually seen ones which mostly have shiny leaves.
