Gunnera is a fantastic plant for large areas that need a bold touch. It has VERY LARGE leaves and likes wet conditions. An apparently native species graces the stream course that crosses our finca. Here it is called “hoja de pantano”which can be translated to English as Swamp Leaf or Marsh Leaf. This because it occurs in very wet habitats. I have not identified the species occurring at the finca yet. I am learning to be careful about this as the diversity in our area is high and one can easily make a mistake. Later I will make a page on this plant with images of our plants.
