This plant is about six feet tall at this point. Its leaves are about twelve inches across. The stalk looks like it is pulpy.

    Has this plant ever bloomed? It looks like it could be in the piperaceae family. Are the stems similar to bamboo shoots?

    Resembles paulownia tomentosa, but the leaves are more rounded and floppy than specimens I’ve seen, so I’m not sure. Another species of paulownia? Or perhaps young specimens in shaded locations might have this much leaf variation?
