The Gunnera hamiltonii belongs to the family Haloragaceae. It is a perenniak herb that is distributed on New Zealand's South Island and Stewart Island. This herb grows in moist lands of grasslands and thickets, is about 10 cm in height, and spreads like a carpet. The bronze-colored leaves are broad-ovate, serrated and basal. It blooms in the fall, but it is barely noticeable. The fruits are drupes and ripen red.
