I think I've put up pictures last year or the year before of these plants from the Koi Pond at Sarah Duke. Each year I'm amazed again at how they look. I don't know what type of plant they are, but I'd never seen anything like them before.
Each plant has 5 leaves and the smallest one has all those extra "ribs", as you can see better in the picture below. Weird. There's also flowers in the center but I've never been there when one was in full bloom so I don't know what they look like.
