it was suppose to be Virginia Bluebells but now I am thinking it is either something else or something that hitched a ride with the bluebells
(which were just roots a a stem when I planted it )

It reminds me a bit of Rumex but I'm not sure. There are a few listed in the database: http://garden.org/plants/search/text.php?q=Rumex&button=

Thank you so much for the Acorn tip but I'm not certain your plant is Rumex. Better wait til someone more knowledgeable comes along for confirmation. Green Grin!

I bet it was a hitchhiker with the bluebells! I wonder if it could be Fiddle Dock (Rumex pulcher)
