Gunnera tinctoria

(DINOSAUR FOOD) Super-sized, prehistoric perennial of gargantuan proportions! 8’ x 8’ – this plant needs elbow room, bright light and rich moist soil (but not wet feet in winter). Protect the crown over the winter – lobed leaves to 5’ across have soft ‘teeth’ on stem undersides – mysterious cones are partially obscured by leaves…unless of course, the brontosaurus eats them!
