Gunnera manicata is a spectacular herbaceous perennial. A dramatic, architectural plant, Gunnera manicata features rounded, deeply veined and deeply toothed leaves which can reach 2m. The leaves are held on clumps of stout, prickly stalks which can achieve an ultimate height of 2.5m and large, bottle brush spikes of tiny reddish-brown florets appear in spring. One of the most impressive plants that can be grown in Britain, Gunneramanicata looks wonderful at the edge of a pond or stream, where the reflections reveal the prickly underside of the leaves.  It requires deep, permanently moist, humus-rich soil, lots of space and protection from cold, drying winds. The fat growth buds clustered in the crown are also prone to frost damage, but the dead leaves and stems can be piled into a mound over the plants in autumn for winter protection. The Royal Horticultural Society has given Gunnera manicata an Award of Garden Merit.
