Giant Purple Plant. What is the name?
I saw this giant purple plant upto 10 ft tall in somebody's yard. It has beautiful shiny, palm like foliage. I talked to the gardener who is a kind old lady but don't speak any English. From her son I know it might be an annual plant. And she gave me some seeds! Enough to share in the coming seed swap if interested.
But I would love to know the name and the properties of this plant. Would you please take a shot? Marie, you identified Gunnera well. Could you for this? It has somewhat similar leaf shape as Gunnera, but surface is smooth.
