About Titanotrichum

Titanotrichum are unusual herbaceous perennial plants with stunning foliage and attractive foxglove-like flowers that are held upon fleshy, regal stems. They are best suited to cottage and informal garden settings. You should expect to see Titanotrichum grow to a height and spread of around to 40cm (16”).

How to plant Titanotrichum

Gunnera are best planted in moist, poorly-drained soil of clay or loam within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH balance. Choose a site that receives part shade and where the soil will stay cool and moist. Amend the planting area by loosening the soil and mixing a generous amount of compost. Dig a hole that is twice the diameter of the root ball so that it is level with the soil surface. Once settled in place, firm the soil and water thoroughly.

How to care for Titanotrichum

Gunnera are easy to care for once established. However, ensure they are protected during periods of cold weather and frost as they do suffer is temperatures drop below 14°F (-10°C). During autumn you may wish to remove all the leaves to retain a neat and tidy appearance during the winter. Cover the stump with the leaves to protect it against frost and cold winter air.

How to propagate Titanotrichum

It is possible to propagate Titanotrichum by division during the spring.
