Dinosaur Food is a magnif­icent big and bold perennial which grows to 8 ft. tall. The enormous leaves reach 4-8 ft. across. Grown well, Dinosaur Food is the ultimate accent plant. Children and adults love to be photographed in front of Dinosaur Food plants.

Dinosaur Food requires constantly moist, boggy soil, high humidity, and mild summer weather. It is not a plant for hot or dry climates. Plants thrive next to streams or pools. In cooler climates leaves will die-back to the roots in winter. Where winters are mild, leaves last more than 1 year. Winter hardy to zone 7.

Dinosaur Food grows beautifully with Joe-pye weed.
