I recently came across a cluster of wild plants growing in a very wet soil in S.E. Cornwall. Can anyone please help me to identify them?
Cornwall, United Kingdom
Covering an area of about 50 square metres in a very boggy woodland, these plants have huge leaves (largest about 600mm/24in) shaped like giant cos lettuce leaves growing from the ground. Several plants had stocky, poker-like stems eminating from the centre origin of the leaves with a pointed cluster on the end which will obviously become a flower. Photographs attached were taken with mobile phone so of poor quality - my apologies.
