The leaves look similar to arum lily, but i really think it’s another even more beautiful plant: canna lily!
Here’s more info about it, it’s also called balisier and it has stunning flowers: https://www.nature-and-garden.com/gardening/balisier.html
Yes you would need to protect it in winter, much like you would a banana tree. It’ll certainly grow back from its roots if mulched well, but to get some blooming it helps to protect the leaves, too. Wrap it up in fall before it freezes with hay and horticultural fleece.
