This is about the strangest plant I have ever seen. I have no idea what it is. Please help! Spotted it growing in a moist area in my hollow in SE Kentucky. Looks like some type of succulent. Stands about 3' tall with just one pair of umbrella like set of leaves on top. It is getting ready to bloom. I will update when it does. Thanks!
