Gunnera grows wild and quite freely on the Isle of Lewis in Scotland. Here are photos of the plant near Portvoller taken by Christian Wagner. The gunnera is now regarded and described as an 'Island Pest'. There is one small croft that has been completely taken over by the Gunnera. It receives no attention at all, looks like a pile of rotting cardboard over the winter, not attractive. And then comes back the next year even larger.
