Re: aviary/now Gunnera

hot, humid nights. is that it, marge? if it is they would never survive here. great looking plant, though. kinda wished it liked southwest florida--but then, if it did, everyone in these parts would have one or three. and it would probably turn out to be invasive and, well, there go the everglades [again, again].

Well, I am totally jealous, David...have longed for a Gunnera for
many years.  They are just marginally hardy for me and, being plants
of cooler cloud forests, do not appreciate my hot, humid nights.
But, one of these days I will give one a whirl.  I have read of
people growing it in either North or South Carolina - with lots of
TLC and its not reaching its huge potential, but surviving, so,
Andrea, there is hope:-)

World Plants Nursery has a very good page on Gunnera with information
about this marvelous plant and what it needs to grow successfully:
