Giant rhubarb

Giethoorn. Cottage with gunnera manicata or giant rhubarb.

Giant rhubarb at Giethoorn, with thanks to Elsa for sharing on Flicker :)


  1. Blew my mind, too. I think the plant is originally from Tibet and has some medicinal qualities I've forgotten (or else I'm totally confused). All I know is that in my family rhubarb is famous as a laxative. I look at this huge plant and think, oh sh--! (excuse the language!)
