This has been growing in one of our flowerbeds for around 5 or 6 years. Always a single leaf and usually not as large as this. I'm intrigued by it. Please can someone identify it for me? Thank you!!!!
SOLVED: What on earth is this plant please??
It's a species of Trillium or wakerobin. There are several possibilities as to species because this plant was most likely purchased at a local garden centre or online. They are native to temperate North America and Asia.

Thank you so much vanillaman. My husband always wanted a Trillium but said we have no place to plant one. Obviously it likes that area among the ferns. He is so pleased.
You are very welcome Terri. However, I suggest you look around for another plant to keep that one company. It looks like there's room there somewhere for 1 or 2 more lol! After 5 or 6 years, this plant should have flowered, even though they can be challenging to grow. In addition to trying another plant, I would fertilize it a couple of times this season to try to force it to flower. Try a high phosphorus fertilizer, something like 15-30-15 or whatever you have or can find and follow the directions.
