Spinach?

Looks like some kind of spinach or beet, perhaps a mixed planting.

Perhaps ...

... the flowering stem of a chard.

My offering

Is based on the assumption it's a native species; but the area Ms Baughan is looking at was planted with all sorts of exotics when I was there. That's rather a long time ago, though!

No

Nothing like Persicaria maculosa!!

Thank you all

the garden is growing all sorts of vegetables and herbs so the beetroot or chard are the best bets.

Chard

After looking at this plant again I think it may be chard-as suggested.
