Ligularia japonica 'Chinese Dragon'

Cutleaf Leopard Plant

Plant Type:

SHADE PERENNIALS

Ligularia japonica 'Chinese Dragon' - Bold compound green leaves on the Cutleaf Leopard Plant are a knockout. These are topped with spikes of clustered golden yellow rayed flowers in mid to mid-late summer which draw lots of pollinators including a bevy of butterflies, a bustle of bees and an array of admirers. Fertile ground on the sour side of the pH spectrum is preferable. Part sun to open or dappled shade. This will make an exceptionally bold statement in the perennial border. Established potted perennial by division.
