This is the evergreen European Wild Ginger which is such a performer in the shade garden.  I recall a particularly memorable patch at the Chase Estate outside of Boston many years ago which fueled my desire to grow this.  Really easy and hardy and doesn't seem to be high on the slug gnosh list here in our garden.
