Gunnera monoica. While it's supposed to be a zone 8 plant we have never been able to keep it alive in the garden for more than a couple of years but it's very happy living in a waterlogged pot in a cool greenhouse.
Gunnera tinctoria we have that we grew from seed that was wild collected in Chile in 2005. Last June we potted it into this larger container & left it out in the Sun (Whoops) within a couple of days it was dried up & gone! We didn't throw the box away though & now 10 months later it's decided to re emerge & give life another chance :^)..

Last year we posted this photo of Embothrium coccineum growing at Norbert Kinnen's Big Phat & Special Plants Nursery. Norbert kindly shared the tree's seed crop with us & now we have lots of germinating Embothrium seedlings popping up.
