x-Gunnera Manicata

Gunnera manicata (Gunnera or so called Giant Rhubarb) is a spectacular plant with its giant rhubarb-like leaves held aloft on thick, prickly stems; an architectural show stopper for a large bog garden area or beside a large pond. It needs space to thrive but if you have the space and a boggy area it is worth having! The new growth is susceptible to frost damage so will need protecting with a thick covering of mulch in the autumn.
