Now each one is counting.
Though I am far behind I would like to post this unique plant as my 200th post of the month.

CHILEAN RHUBARB Gunnera tinctoria
Family Gunneraceae. Native of Chile.
This was observed and captured from San Francisco botanical garden in Jun 2011.
I was lucky to see this plant in blossom.
Description details in one picture itself.

Shweta ji not the real rhubarb, eaten raw as fruit: Rheum rhabarbarum

This is Chilean Rhubarb, introduced as ornamental but now become a nasty weed in many parts of the world.

Thank you Satishji for this Foto.
I had made Fotos of a plant in Chile in March 2010, but did not know the name. I think mines are  CHILEAN RHUBARB too.
I shall post mines in a separate mail.
