Plant of the Month for August, 2019

 (a-stil-BOY-dees  tab-yoo-LAIR-iss)

General Information:

Do you want to grow gunnera but your climate is too cold? Then Astilboides tabularis is a good alternative. It has some of the largest leaves you can grow in colder climates and it makes a strong statement in any garden. Most people who visit my garden are unfamiliar with the plant and find it very exotic. Its leaves are an odd round shape that reminds one of an umbrella or table top.  They easily reach 60-90 cm (2-3 feet) in diameter.
