Description:

The big leaves are 210mm in length and 100mm wide, I have no idea as to the age of the plant but currently it is 510mm high.
It has a single reddy brown stem and the new leaves are also red/brown.
As we live in a Nature Reserve I am reluctant to plant it out until it has been identified. I have searched through my books with out success.
Can any one help me.
Thanks
