Gunnera Manicata. Brazilian Giant Rhubarb.

The Gunnera Manicata is a clump forming and very tough herbaceous perennial which grows well in the UK. A real statement plant, the huge rough textured deeply lobed leaves can reach sizes of 6ft or more across, given suitable conditions. Liking shade and continuosly damp conditions this unique plant brings a dramatic and tropical look to the garden.

Around November the leaves should be cut off and piled onto the centre crown which will protect and insulate against the cold until spring when it can be uncovered to allow new growth to begin.
