Astilboides tabularis, Gunnera and Brunnera....
I have left questions in various places but so far no answers, so perhaps I've been asking in the wrong places...I've observed the obvious similarities of these three plants...and knowing that changes have been taking place in the taxonomic name game...I wondered if anyone else had researched these large leaved water loving plants...and could help me be less confused by them? I have a spot in the back of my garden where I am planning a bog spot (No not blog...bog as in marsh.lol.) my climate means that whatever I choose of these three, it will be an annual planting...
Don't know much about any of these three, but I do believe that the Brunnera is a corm or rhizome...I've looked in the books I have at hand and it appears that a google or wiki is required because I can't find much about them in my library.
