The Dapple Designs Expert Says:

Gunnera manicata is a herbaceous perennial with huge roughly textured leaves. It resembles the Rhubarb plant used in cooking but on a very large scale. Grow Gunnera in constantly moist soil that's rich in humus and in an open sunny position for best results. A great plant for bog gardens
