First spring in a new house/garden. Found loads of these growing in a shaded area I was planning to plant. Any ideas what they are? Triffids?

Looks like Rheum palmatum a really handsome plant for a damp shady spot .. like a mini Gunnera 👍🙂 it's leaves similar to Rhubarb as in the same family, very jealous if it is Steven

Thanks, looks like I don't have to plant that area now. I'll have to wait and see what comes up.

Not far off jane @pelly 👍 it still could be ? Same family and very similar leaf , but given the position and number of plants I suspect it is Rheum, as Steven says good to wait and see and then make a decision 😊
