I bought this plant last year from someone who mislabeled it. Its leaves look like gunnera, and are about a foot in diameter. The person told me it droops in direct sun, and I have it in a shady spot that gets some sun. This is the first Spring I have had it and the photo shows what it looks like today. I'm in zone 5b. I'd really appreciate any help identifying it. Thanks!

The flowers look like Petasites. (Butterbur).
