Manihot grahamii (hardy tapioca).

Agree with Anna, but it can be invasive in some climates.

I doubt it would be invasive here, since it can get to -30 sometimes. LOL

Definitely some of the most impressive leaves I have seen! Thumbs up
In some Native languages the term for plants translates to "those who take care of us."

I read the reviews, and it sounds like as Anna pointed out. Very very invasive with exploding seeds and a problem in warm zones,. Reviews from cooler zones were not having real issues. I am a little leary of plants with this reputation until someone like my neighbor tells me it was safe to grow here. HEHE Lazy gardener who has enough weeds already.

I agree as well, a type of Manihot, but instead of sending folks off site to some old garden... Whistling why not keep folks here on NGA:
