When people complain that their garden is like a bog they are overlooking the large-leaved rhubarb family, which generously gives a bog a good name. The giant gunnera, growing slowly and luxuriously over a long season, dies down in winter and in many northern areas needs winter protection (economically done by covering the crowns with piles of gunnera leaves and staking them down).

Gunnera Manicata - This is one of the largest herbaceous perennials in the world growing over 2 meter tall with wider spread. A single leaf can reach 2.5 meter in diameter and are shaped to direct rain water to its roots. Prickly stems. A real show stopper in any garden. Three year old plants are massive, so plan accordingly.
