Description

In underbrush under deciduous trees in partial shade. Alongside blackberry bushes. Single bush (or sapling?) maybe 1m tall. Alternating leaves. Color of leaves is bright yellow green and veins are darker green. Edge of leaves slightly serrated. Top leaves about 7 inches long, 3.5 inches wide. I only saw one in this location. The color stood out among the other plants.
