Gunnera tinctoria

Common Name: Chilean Rhubarb

Gunnera is one of South America's best contributions to our gardens, with leaves easily reaching 5 ft. across and 7 ft. high, sometimes more! It is easy and rapid-growing in moist soil, blossoming annually with tiny flowers on large 2 ft. club-like structures. Our liners finish fast in a #2 or #3 container. (Note: For a plant that loves water, it seems oddly averse to the high summer humidity of the East and Southeast).
