Gunnera Tinctoria Leaf

Gunnera tinctoria. Leaf.

Rugged terrain
With fractal roads
Following the valleys

Gunnera tinctoria, the Chilean rhubarb, is a plant species native to southern Chile and neighbour zones in Argentina. It is essentially unrelated to rhubarb, as the two plants belong into different orders, but looks similar from a distance and has similar culinary uses. It is a large-leaved perennial plant that grows up to two metres tall. It has been introduced to many parts of the world as an ornamental and edible[citation needed] plant. In some countries (for instance New Zealand and Ireland) it has spread from gardens and is becoming a weed problem ~ Bernard
