    i dont know but i want one

  • Tentative suggestion - Polygonum? If so, its common name is knotweed and some are weeds, some are border plants.

    The upper sides of the leaves have the texture of a Gunnera, but wrong shape and totally wrong flower. Bet it's a thirst plant. It almost looks like a cabbage leaf. Dunno, but like little-ann I'd like one.

    What a strange looking plant,  reminded me of cabbage leaves as idea of what is though

    Wonder if it's some sort of spinach etc. that's gone to seed.
