    Wigandia caracasanaThis amazing small tree has huge leaves that will entertain in more ways than one! they are bold to look at and can sting a bit like a weak stinging nettle, great to fool the unweary.In early summer it produces large clusters of deep mauve flowers to add to its exotic look. It is a bit frost tender in my climate but now that it is well established it always comes back from the main trunks in spring. It will sucker a bit so you need to control it which I don’t find that hard and the impressiveness of the plant makes up for any effort. Nice plants at the moment in 20cm. pots for $32.50Wigandia caracasana
