Giant Pricky Rhubarb

Gunnera manicata

This giant plant has the largest leaves of any plant grown in the UK. The leaves are borne on long, stout, prickly stems and can grow to well over a meter in diameter. It has green/red club shaped flowers that are about 70cm long.

This plant will die back to its roots for winter, and begin growing again in the spring. Gunnera's overwinter best when the brown leaves are left over the crown as a protective barrier to frosts. 

This is a bog garden plant, therefore will grow in damp ground conditions only. Do not put this directly into a pond.
