Ligularia ‘Dragon Wings’
The dramatic, leathery leaves are 12″ across and deeply cut like a snowflake or the wings of a mythical creature. Yellow summer flowers in slender, dense racemes. The leaves and flower spikes have dark purple stems that add to the drama. Clumping habit. Best if protected from the hottest sun and kept evenly moist.
