Dinosaur Food - Giant Gunnera Seeds

Gunnera manicata

 

Dinosaur food, is one of the biggest and most spectacular, architectural, herbaceous plants, commonly thought of as Giant rhubarb. This perennial can grow to a height of 6-8 feet tall and spread over 8-10 feet wide. Gunnera manicata is native to the cloud forests of the Andes, mainly places like Chile, Costa Rica, and Columbia. They can be grown in pots for a couple of years but will not grow as large as they would in the ground naturally. They can be kept growing all year in a greenhouse in which it doesn't freeze. These magnificent, big, bold perennials develop enormous leaves that can grow 1,20m-2,50m (4-8 feet) across, making this one of the world's largest herbaceous plants. Growth is fast if the plant is happy. The plant has spines or sharp edges; use extreme caution when handling. Where Winters are mild, the leaves will last more than 1 year but in colder climates the leaves die-back to the roots in Winter.
