Re: aviary/now Gunnera


Hope the Gunnera works out better than the Petasites japonicus variegatus
did for me. It's also a big leaf plant (about half the leaf size of a
Gunnera). I put it by the pond and the white flowers and variegated leaves
looked good in the spring. The slugs and snails liked it a lot. Summer came
and it basically fainted when it was hot then came to later in the day. It
liked where it was though so it spread rapidly . Now we are trying to get
rid of it.
