These are probably Xanthosoma robustum, growing alongside bananas in St. Marys Georgia. These babies are about 7-8ft. tall but I have seen even bigger ones in South Florida.

RE: Giant Xanthosomas

Oh yes ive seen some giants in North Florida too. I can remember seeing them in Jacksonville as tall as houses. I probably should have said Florida in general instead of S. Florida.
