What's the name of that very low growing, very large leaved boo? You know, the nightmare one. Is it something palmatum?

Thats what I thought. the reason I'm asking is I've seen one in a garden. It's about a foot high, extremely large leaves which are rounded on the ends, not pointy. Same plant?

Getting there. As I said, very rounded end to the leaves

I can honestly say it's not that one. The leaves on what I saw are big and wide and only half a metre tall at most. I'll have to knock on their door and beg some....just for photographic purposes of course!
