This is the miniature cousin of the gigantic Gunnera manicata. An evergreen plant, excellent for permanent groundcover so ideal for use at the edge of small water features or planted en masse around larger pools. The plant is such a good 'doer' with its exquisite cup shaped, scalloped, kidney-shaped leaves forming a spreading mat 'iced' with minute green flowers, with a finale round, orangey red fruits.
