Hailing from South America and also known as Giant Rhubarb this herbaceous plant is an absolute monster and is guaranteed to add a 'Jurassic' feel to your garden.
It needs plenty of space in a moist sunny border as it forms a succession of huge stately parasol leaves atop a curious furry rhizome. The pinkish flowers are insignificant but are borne on curious spiky stems.
Beside a pond or stream with room to reach its full potential, this plant is one of the most impressive that can be grown in the UK!
