At the South Seattle College Arboretum I saw this very different looking plant. I tried to figure out how to google this plant. Big leaves. Pineapple like stalk. Spiky. Zucchini leaves. Fluffy white pink flower. Exotic. I don't know how, but I found it.
Here is a more professional description:
Giant Rhubarb is a unique offering that produces whopping 6′ leaves that are distinctively patterned with deep veins and coarsely toothed edges. This exotic focal point is ideal for damp or boggy spots. The underside of the leaf and the whole stalk have spikes on them. In early summer it bears tiny red-green flowers in conical branched panicles, followed by small, spherical fruit. However, it is primarily cultivated for its massive leaves.
