Is This The Ugliest Flower In Our Garden

We have loads of different flowers in our garden at Pottery House, many are grown for use in the house, on the breakfast tables, in the hall and in the guest bedrooms.

However, probably the strangest looking flower (and I think it can be classed as a flower) is that of the Gunnera, in the bog garden behind the pond.

It's about 2" high, spikey and dark red, and lasts for months.

I'm not so sure if visitors to our B&B would be quite so impressed to find this in a vase in their bedroom, though.
