Gunnera manicata is a tropical plant with leaves 5-10 feet across. Mature plants can have a 40 foot spread! They're sensitive to frost and will grow only in areas that do not get even a suggestion of frost in the winter.

Seeds of Gunnera manicata are available through a nursery called GreenDealer.
