Gunnera manicata, Giant Rhubarb, Giant Gunnera, Mammutblatt, Dinosaur Food Plant

Family: Gunneraceae
Giant Rhubarb, Giant Gunnera, Mammutblatt, Dinosaur Food Plant
Origin: Brazil
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeBog or aquaticRegular waterOrnamental foliageSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeFlood tolerant

Gunnera is one of the biggest and most spectacular, architectural, herbaceous plants, commonly thought of as 'giant rhubarb'. The plants need a lot of space because it is difficult to restrict their size. They look best standing as specimen plants in a damp bog garden, or beside a large pond where the reflections reveal the prickly undersides of the umbrella-sized leaves. The fat growth buds clustered in the crown are prone to frost damage, so pile the dead leaves and stems into a mound over the plants in autumn for winter protection - they make quite a feature of their own. Grow on in any good moist garden soil. Mulch the large crowns with the leaves in regions where winter temperatures are likely to drop below -5C (20F) A heavy mulch can help these plants survive -17C (0F).

Gunnera tinctoria is a large, clump-forming, herbaceous plant that grows up to 2m in height. It has stout horizontal rhizomes, and massive umbrella-sized leaves with an exotic tropical appearance. The leaves and their stems are covered in rubbery prickles. Tiny green flowers occur in early summer on conical spikes. The young leaf stalks can be peeled and cooked as a vegetable or eaten raw.

In severe winter conditions the plant dies down for the winter and grows new leaves in spring.

Family: Asteraceae / Compositae
Senegal tea
Origin: South America
Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeBog or aquaticWhite/off-white flowersInvasiveSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Gymnocoronis spilanthoides confined to wet marshy soils and still or very slowly flowing waters. It is one of the relatively few members of the very large family Asteraceae to be kept as an aquarium plant. Useful to deprive algae of suspended nutrients in the water.

The leaves are dark green and arranged in opposite pairs along the stem. The edges of the spearhead-shaped leaves are serrated. The numerous, white, ball-shaped flowers, 15 to 20mm in diameter, occur at the ends of stems. Thin, fibrous roots can develop from leaf veins or from any node in contact with moist soil or water.
