Gunnera manicata & G. tinctoria

Above: G, manicata. Taken today on Forth Mountain, there were 3 clumps, one large and two small, this is the first time I have seen Gunnera reproducing in the county. The flowers spikes are very large and lay flat on the ground.
Below: G. tinctoria. Also on Forth Moutnain, very surprised as this was also reproducing. Does seem strange to come across both on the same day, especially as both were along the same road. The flower spikes stand upright.
