Ornamental Chilean Rhubarb
(Despite the common name, this plant is not edible!)
Magnificent large foliaged plants that require a lot of room to grow, but make a dynamic statement.
The underside of the leaf and the whole stalk have spikes on them.
The leaves grow to an impressive size. Leaves with diameters well in excess of 4 feet (120cm) are commonplace, with a spread of 10 x 10 feet (3 x 3 metres) on a mature plant)
Feed well to optimise growth.
Can also be grown in large pots.
Grows best in damp conditions (e.g. by the side of garden ponds) but dislikes Winter cold and wet. Cover the plant with its own dead foliage to protect the crown in Winter.
They will lose their leaves in Winter in the cold areas of Australia, but the crowns will survive frost up to minus 10 degrees (even colder if protected with a thick layer of mulch through Winter). Spring will see amazingly fast growth.
Keep fed well during the growing seasons.
