Cleveland Gunnera Survived Winter.
Well I went out last week while the weather was still nice (we had over a foot of snow this weekend)and uncovered several of my VERY marginal plants to see if they survived.
The Gunnera manicata that I bought from the local pond store survived with flying colors surviving a week of below zero weather protected by it's own leaves that I cut off and laid on top of the crowns and a layer of leaves.
A little bit of background, the plant is located at the north side of the house planted against the wall. I'll keep you posted on how it does throughout the season.
