Sweet Spot Dwarf Leopard Plant
Item #: 16563
Zones: 7a to 10b
Height: 5" tall
Origin: China, Japan, Korea
(aka: Ligularia tussilaginea) Farfugium 'Sweet Spot' is a 2022 Plant Delights/JLBG introduction of our selected seedling from Farfugium 'Bashi Ogi', which is much more dwarf that even it's small parent, maturing at a whopping 5" tall and 1' wide. The leaves, which are heavily spotted yellow, mature at just under 3" in width. The small clumps are topped with 1' tall spikes of yellow daisies, starting for us in mid-October. Even if 'Farfugium 'Sweet Spot' isn't hardy in your zone, its small size will make it a perfect house plant for any widow sill.
