Found naturally in moist habitats, Chilean Gunnera has big, bold, coarse, dark green foliage on long prickly stalks. The large leaves grow up to 5 ft. wide and have lobed, serrated, ruffled margins. Excellent architectural plants. Use as a focal point along the edge of a pond or stream, or in a bog garden. In comparison with G. manicata, G. tinctoria is a slightly smaller plant with darker green leaves that are more serrated, less deeply lobed and held more vertically.
