This is a quite an imposing perennial herbaceous flowering plant as everything on it is disproportionately large... The entire plant, seen on pic N° 3 was over 1,80 m tall, and well over 2,50m wide. Basal leaves are also huge, 45 to 50 cm in length. Regarding flowers, a carpenter bee could hide inside.
Native to Mediterranean region , it seemed quite well adapted to Brittany, France - we saw it often in Crozon peninsula, on edges of urban areas and on edges of woods, and always close close to the water, most often sea.
