This plant appeared following our quest to return a woodland floor to its natural state. It is a carnivore of some description, has marked spikes on the leaves, and pools of water collecting where the leaves join the stem is full of dead insects. We have no idea what it is, whether invasive or not, of interest (or not.) It is next to our organic allotment
