Rare & undulatious (or undulicious!), this cool South African Gunnera grows only to 2’ tall with wonderful, edible, light green, very wavy leaves to 6” across. The green flower spikes appear in August. It’s not too fussy about soil, but cool & moist conditions are best. Excellent bog or water garden subject.

We got our plant from Heronswood back in the 90’s. Our plant is now a thicket 6’ across. The foliage is oval and has curvy margins. We mulch with leaves in winter and grow with plants of Fuschia megellanica.
