Gunnera is a bold architectural plant. It is grown mainly for its enormous lobed leaves, each of which can span 6 feet across. It thrives in wet places beside streams and ponds and in bog gardens. The small flowers cluster in large structures similar to corn cobs. If happy, gunnera develops into huge and gorgeous colonies, so provide plenty of space.
