If you haven’t room for a gunnera, try Darmera Peltata instead. Still spectacular but on a more manageable scale. Large rounded lobed leaves (hence the common name of umbrella plant) make for an imposing presence. Clusters of pinkish flowers in spring. Good for beside a pond or stream. Sun or semi-shade. Moist soil. 36 in. 2 litre pot.
Rather odd, but then we like odd plants. A true character.
Darmera Peltata is the sole species in its genus. It is native to the western parts of the USA where its natural habitat is mountain streamsides in wooded areas. Which sounds rather lovely for it.
Here is a video from an Irish garden focusing on the rather dramatic spring re-emergence of Darmera Peltata:
Darmera Peltata is a hardy perennial plant with large rounded lobed umbrella like leaves and pink flowers in spring suitable for sun or semi-shade.
