Cranberry Stem describes this perfectly.  A giant elephant ears with 3 foot long, green leaves with cranberry red viens and stalk.  It grows fast and multiplies rapidly.  I usually pull up a dozen or more small plants each spring, leaving a few of the largest to get full sized.  Othewise you will end up with a large number of small plants.
