  1. Ahh gotta love Farfugiums! :) Is that F. giganteum?

  2. Yes, it is Farfugium japonicum 'Giganteum'. The only large-leaf plant I can reliably grow, aside from rhubarb :-).

    My potted Farfugium japonicum 'Aureomaculatum' is getting large also.

    I love farfugiums. They look like plants that could have grown in the age of dinosaurs. Now if only our climate were right for gunneras...

  4. Sage Butterfly, thank you so much for your kind words. They're music to my ears. I really appreciate you following my blog.

  5. F. 'Giganteum' is a much more elegant giant than Gunnera manicata (both are nice though!)

    Have you tried other Gunneras like the G. perpensa (which looks like Farfugium funny enough) or the very small leafed G. magellanica?
