General Information

The leaf on each stalk is VERY shiny and the stalk itself is quite fleshy.

Leaves come up in March and grow to a width of 8 inches + on mature plant and grows to around 12-16 inches in height.
The best way to describe it physically is like a miniature umbrella.

Not to be confused with the umbrella plant which has multiple leaves spanning from a centralized point. This has one leaf per stalk and fans out in a bit of a drapping motion, just like an umbrella.

Intresting, it looks like a member of the cucurbitaceae family, but it has peltate leaves. When the flower comes out, someone will know it.
