Looks every time like a giant nuclear plant version plant,of those Mallows I get as weeds.
Those Gunnera's are heavy potted plants. I see them sold as pond plants.
I've never seen one in anybody's yard. Swamp plants are difficult to keep going year after year. Other then at the botanical gardens.
Every leaf looks perfect Klahaine. Not a single brown edge from dryness.

Stan, it is very boggy in that area. I think we got an aquifer there. I need to find some plants which likes these conditions and deer would not like. The gunnera is very happy there. I have few more and hope they will drink a lot.
