I found this in a garden in the French Alps at 275m high, any ideas what it is? The red bit is about 40cm and the green is about 50cm.

It is Dracunculus vulgaris, commonly known as Voodoo lily, snake lily, stink lily and other names. It's a deciduous, tuberous plant, which, despite its exotic appearance, grows well in temperate climes.
