This tree with huge leaves is Tetraplanax papyrifer "Rex" in the Araliaceae or ivy family; it originates in Taiwan. It is an area of trees, shrubs, and a grotto in the large garden of "The Holme".
The Holme, Regent's Park
The first villa built in Regent's Park, designed in 1818 by Decimus Burton as home for his father John Burton, a builder who supported Nash in developing the park. It is owned by the Crown Commission. From about 1947 to 1985 it was leased by Bedford College as an academic and residential building, then it again became a private residence. The original gardens designed by J C Loudon were lost; the present 4 acre gardens were designed by Colson Stone Practice LinkExternal link . Their website says: the plan "was inspired by the original Regency garden layout and which included lavishly planted, mounded, island beds and serpentine paths. The design also included a new rock garden, complete with grotto and waterfall."
In 2017 the garden was open to the public for charity on four days as part of the National Garden Scheme.
