Chinese lantern Physalis alkekengi. Just a guess sine it's planted out in the garden.

Not Physalis but someone will recognize it. The petiole collar is very unique.

Not Jack's Bean Stalk either.

Homalanthus novo-guineensis ......Not very sure how a perennial from the edges of waterways and seepage areas. Often in waterlogged areas...in very hot tropical North Australia could end up in cold Ontario.Canada.


The collar of mystery plant is very interesting. Technical term seems to be Ochrea.
But still not id'd mystery plant..maybe Polygonaceae?

My bad for posting a restrictive link here is another showing a widespread area of the eastern Australian coast habitat. http://www.saveourwaterwaysnow... .There are many more also. I have one growing in our garden, small at this time but surviving very well in our winter that has produced quite a few 0c nights and early mornings. I'm not saying the plant in question is a bleeding heart but it is distributed widely other than tropical Qld.
Here is my bleeding heart Hilarious! .
