Question: I have(had)a shade loving perennial that I started from a small plant growing in Northern Wisconsin. This plant filled a tree shaded ravine with its sweeping stems and large leaves. My plant was coming along nicely but all was destroyed during installation of a new gas line at my house.
I would like to find out what the identity of this plant so I can restart it.
Heart shaped leaves grow alternately off a single sweeping stem. Some plants I saw full grown reached 5 ft tall. Might populate through roots as I had several new plants pop up in close proximity. Likes moisture and shade. Grew quite well on the North side of my house.
Can you help me?

I'm sorry, but without seeing it, it's difficult to say. I suggest you take a sample to a local nursery or to the Anoka County Cooperative Extension office, 550 Bunker Lake Blvd NW, Anoka, 612-755-1280. Good luck!
