Bottom leaf looks like Acanthus mollis.

WOW! I really like that! What zone do you live in and what conditions do you have (soil,rain,light) where this is planted? Thanks, Terri Thank You!

Many thanks Silversurfer...!!...brilliant....!!....that must be the plant.....by the way those two leaves come from the same plant....the fresh green one was a young protected leaf not yet hit by recent frosts....the other large leaf was old and semi shrivelled ...it flattened out when I laid it down for the photo..it does look so different though....Thank you again ...that was a great help.
Hurray! I tip my hat to you. Hurray!

Hi Terri
Glad you like it....the plant is growing on a raised amenity bed that I help look after. Soil is free draining ...and I'd say slightly acidic...think it's had some peat added.
It's in Scotland UK....Langholm to be precise...:-)

I just love those leaves. I am going to try to find some seeds or...??? I want to try to grow this.

Thank you from across the big pond! Terri

Bear's Breeches (Acanthus mollis) is a really neat looking plant!
