I sure wish I had a camera: plant similar to Fatsia but not?
As I say, my camera is broken, but maybe someone can rise to the challenge.
This plant is large and reminded me initially of Gunnera, but it's not fuzzy and doesn't seem to be as big as Gunnera.
Leaves glossy and stems herbaceous, died back to the ground overwinter in temperate zone 7/8 Pacific Northwest, looks like last year it had some tall, hollow fibrous bloom stalks. Now emerging, and some leaves are larger than a football.
Where Gunnera and Fatsia have sort of star-shaped leaves, this one is almost like a big wrinkly oak leaf, if that makes sense. The leaves are glossy.
It's growing in almost full sun in not real great soil.
Things it is not: Gunnera, Fatsia, rhubarb, castor bean, fig, tetrapanax.
