Mystery plant

Hello - a mystery plant has appeared in my garden!!! the first 18" of this plant looks like a lily stem and then quite a number of branches covered in green buds have appeared - these have been on for quite sometime and do not look as they are going flower. It is now approx 4/5ft high. I would like to move it to another part of the garden but not sure how high it will grow or what area I should put it in - any help would be appreciated. [/img]

I'm thinking spider lily which sends up bare flowering shoots in autumn.... If that's what it is, then it grows from bulb and I'm pretty sure is best dug up and moved after flowering or in spring before any growth starts.

I've looked up spider lily in books and sorry but it does'nt appear to be like the plant in my garden - it has loads of buds on the branches (about a dozen or so) but as these have been on for ages I don't think anything will come of them. Also there is about 12 or more branches on the plant. But many thanks for your reply.

Hi Hutch Posting a photo of the plant in question can help us I.d it alot quicker and more accurately. If you aren't sure how to post a photo you can easily post one by following these simple steps.
