theres a plant thats related that has red under the leaves and i dont think it has the spiky looking stems that doesnt get so big . it could be the plant mg has mentioned but i cant remember latin names . rhubarb is also related .

A similar plant to Gunnera but only grows to 3-4 feet is Peltophyllum peltatum (spelling ?) or Damera...a water loving member of the saxifrage family.

Gunnera magellanica grows to less than a foot in height

Whichever one mine is I don't see any signs of growth yet - dead perhaps?

Nope we are seeing no signs of growth yet

I've just divided and repotted my gunnera magellanica (it grows in a planting basket at the edge of the pond)

Ok I'll leave it for a while then.
