Oh yes, that's lovely. I got a Rheum the other day but it's not this dark. I love them though, they are wonderful tropical looking foliage plants. Now I have my shady corner I finally have somewhere to grow one where it won't look out of place!

Love them!!! But more importantly they love me, lol. All the ones I grew from seed and planted out in tne Autumn survived the dreaded Winter and are all nicely coming up

Lovely this time of year aren't they, glad yours all survived Dawn, I only have three grown from seed quite a few years ago so sown some of your seed would like a few more, they actually flowered for the first time last year taken around 4 years.
Did your gunnera survive Dawn?
Lol DD sure it'll appear somewhere.

Thanks Simbad, our gunnera took a hammering this last winter, and again with the frost a few days ago.

Oh Kathy, all those young gunneras I grew from seed ..... Well they were in the greenhouse all winter and look pretty dead, i live in hope that they will come to life like the big ones do when the weather warms up, fingers and toes crossed. I had plans for them to be set around the pond this year, big sigh. My rheum have never flowered yet, maybe this year :)
