WANTED: Gunnera tinctoria a.k.a. chileansis seed stalk

greenelephant(Woodinville WA)September 17, 2007

I have had a very successful seed trial with G. manicata and now I would like to try G. tinctoria from seed. If you have a ripening seed stalk of G. tinctoria in the Seattle area to share I would be happy to come and get it.

My garden is FULL of plants that can be divided from prairie to woodland to bog.

Right now in pots I have:

Gunnera manicata

Darmera peltata

Heliopsis -- double yellow

Rudbeckia triloba

Cornus mas

Cornus alternifolia

yellow cedar

Port Orford cedar

If you'd like to arrange a trade at the Green Elephant Plant Swap, Nov 3 in Remdmond, that would be great too. By then I'll know what I have to divide and share.

Jim, I'm hoping my knee will be well enough for me to attend the swap (I tore my MCL not quite a week ago and am on activity restriction). I'd love to once again try the Gunnera. I'd also like the heliopsis and rudbekia if available

Right now my house is torn up with a major remodel (new kitchen/DR/deck) and my yard is not in too good of shape. I will of course have dahlias available in the Spring if you'd like some new ones


This link will only be good for another month or so as ImageStation has gone under and I'll be moving to Shutterfly.

Finally I have a positive ID on Gunneras.

I am growing Gunnera tinctoria from seed. This is the one I have in abundance.

I am looking for Gunnera manicata seed head. This one I do not have.

Please respond to jim(dot)eichner(at)juno(dot)com
