The plant has distinctive circular leaves . which are bright green and smooth with a slightly wavy margin. The leaves are attached to long . thin . green stems that originate from a central crown. The crown is a cluster of stems that grow from a bulb-like structure known as a rhizome . which is located just below the soil surface .
