Please correct me if I’m wrong, but I think this is a Gunnera manicata pushing its way up through its winter protection. It’s planted at the edge of one of the ponds at the botanical garden of the University of Hohenheim, not far from our neighborhood. (Unfortunately, its plant tag is also somewhere under all those old branches.)

What drama! And interesting to see how they cover it with evergreen branches. Great bloom day images as well. I keep thinking about getting that yellow Tulip sylvestnis and your pictures may have finally convinced me.
I really like them too (the tulips). I like tulips that are either small and wild-looking or are streaky and frilly with tulip breaking virus.
How very prehistoric looking!
The other name for them is Dinosaur Food.
that is definitely a gunnera manicata, a great plant but you need a large garden for it….
It has plenty of room at Hohenheim. I will check in with it again soon.
