Native plant in AR - please identify

camper72July 25, 2006

I was visiting a friend on Greers Ferry last week. She asked for help in identifying a native plant in the forest.

Several plants grew close to each other, 4 - 8 feet tall, large, saucer-like leaves (some as large as 14" across), each independent on a hollow sounding stem. There was no evidence of any blooms. They were in a heavily wooded area.

Are the leaves pretty much in the shape of a circle? I think I know what you're talking about.
p.s. I teach at the college in Heber Springs, on the other side of the lake.

Do the leaves encircle the stem? I.E. , perfoliate?
