Huge Leaves, Made in the Shade

* See below re the idiom: "made in the shade" Does anybody know the name of this huge-leafed, forest-floor plant? I did a google image search based on this photo, and I got nothing remotely similar. It grows wild here, in shady places near water. As shown, it generally puts up one or a few single stems with 8 big leaves. When mature, each leaf in a group is ca. 25-30cm in length. Thus, a group of 8 like this is ca. 50-60cm in diameter. To me, that is the size of something more usually found in tropical forests. I am a botanical know-nothing. However, it seems logical to me that low-growing plants that "prefer" shady locales would, in order to gather enough sunlight for their "purposes," either put out lots of little leaves or, as here, a few big ones. * Re: made in the shade" From: en.wiktionary.org/wiki/made_in_the_shade " (idiomatic) In a condition characterized by comfort, success, easy living or general well-being." 😋 "Possibly from a children's rhyme: "ice-cold lemonade, made in the shade, stirred with a spade, by an old maid." Location: Small public park between Wenkenpark in the town of Riehen and the public swimming pool in the village of Bettingen. Canton Baselstadt, Switzerland In my album: Dan's Leafscapes.
