Probably Gunnera. Not sure which one.

I agree with Chelle on the Gunnera identity. I've seen many photos of them growing by the waterside in UK gardens.

You're welcome. Smiling

I tried to grow it twice, but it seems to prefer moving rivers to stagnant bog water.

Impressive!

Come back in a few months and see what's growing in that same spot if you want a real surprise!
Please tree mail me for trades, I'm ALWAYS actively looking for more new plants, and love to trade!
