    It’s not ground ginger. Hard to tell from this picture, but the leaves are 12-15″ across. I agree it is farfugium. More specifically, Farfugium japonicum ‘Giganteum’ (Giant Leopard Plant). http://www.plantdelights.com/Farfugium-japonicum-Giganteum-Giant-Leopard-Plant/productinfo/2743/ Thanks for the help!

    Is that a bloom stalk? Yellow flowers? I was thinking ligularia, until I googled farfugium… http://www.plantdelights.com/Farfugium/products/176/

    That’s Farfugium japonicum ( http://www.botanicalstockphotos.com/cat510.htm ). The main attraction is the foliage but it also produces heads of yellow daisy flowers in autumn.
