Gunnera manicata is a giant herbaceous perennial. An absolute monster. A huge furry rhizome lies on the soil surface from which stout, 2m spiny leaf stalks emerge that carry immense, puckered, scalloped, rough textured leaves that can reach over 3m in width. Weird spiky-looking but soft-fingered flower stalks are produced that just add to the whole primaeval, Jurassic feel that the plant has. Reaching full potential in a sheltered position in a mild, wet climate at the edge of a lake or stream in a valley bottom this is simply one of the most dramatic plants that can be grown in the UK - but best given the room it deserves.

Outdoor plants pot sizes
Outdoor plants pot sizes

With items such as ferns, juvenile tree ferns and herbaceous plants it is difficult to give the exact size of each species when such a wide range of plants are grown so we specify standard pot sizes to give an indication of the size and/or age of the plant you are buying.

Sometimes the pot size might vary slightly from the standard or we might listed as 2-3 litre pot, depending on the growers we purchased them from. However, the sizes of the plants are similar in height and spread.

Sometimes the plants might be photographed in decorative pots. However, please bear in mind that our plants are kept in plastic nursery pots.

Plants measurements
Plant measurements

For the outdoor plants, that are meant to be planted in the ground, the height of the pot is excluded from the measurement. The height is measured from the top of the pot to the tallest leaf or branch of the plant.

All plants are measured when brought to our nursery, however, due to natural factors, the actual size of the plant might change over time due to adjustments to the environment. When picking multiple plants for an order, we aim to pick matching plants.

Plant warranties
WARRANTIES

We can guarantee that the plants leave our nursery disease free, but weather and local conditions might affect their survival. Make sure you always make an informed purchasing decision.

The plants that leave our nursery are in the best condition, free of disease. Kept in adequate conditions (positioning and care), the plants are guaranteed for 3 months if they are planted in the ground or one year if they are kept in their original pots. Return policy applies only to plants that are in their original pots.

Bought the 20Ltr pot size and received a healthy, well packaged, great looking plant with some seriously big leaves and an impressive flower to boot. It made an instant impact in the garden - just what I wanted.

I bought two Gunnera manicata - one 3L and one 10L. They were delivered very quickly, and were very well wrapped and protected. The roots filled both the pots and the plants looked very healthy. I would highly recommend and will definitely buy from The Palm Centre again.
