    Does anyone know what this plant is?
    It is very large, woody base, large green leaves.
    Thanks.

    Looks like Schefflera actinophylla, Umbrella Tree.

    Or perhaps Schefflera arboricola, a smaller species from Taiwan. It, very much like the larger one, thrives in full sun. It's become an almost excessively popular hedge plant in Florida. My first guess would be S. actinophylla.
