    Gunnera manicata
    He calls her the chocolate girl
    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver

    Gunnera, probably manicata, is my guess.

    At the opposite end of the scale , I used to grow the miniscule Gunnera magellanica ; leaves were only just over an inch in diameter . Almost needed a lens to view the tiny flower spikes !
