    Some sort of green, spinach but it looks to big for that. Bibb lettuce? Taste a small piece of leave and see f it is sweet or bitter(spit it out if bitter).

    It looks like bergenia, we call it the "schoenmakersplant" in dutch, which means "shoe menders plant" in English.

    It's more a decorative plant, Abe.
