All I can recognize is that it's a mayapple of some sort, a Podophyllum, I think.

P.S. PlantFiles is the name of the database over at DG. The better database is here at ATP. Smiling

Is it a wild plant or something you planted? If it's a wild plant, there is only one likely option: Mayapple (Podophyllum peltatum)

If it was planted, identification might be more difficult because there are a number of Asian species and several of those species have been hybridized to create cultivars.

In that case, I'd guess Himalayan Mayapple (Podophyllum hexandrum), but wouldn't have a great deal of confidence in it.
