(aka: Ligularia tussilaginea 'Tsuwabaki') We formerly offered this as Farfugium 'Tsuwabaki', which turned out to be a common name for farfugiums, so we gave it the cultivar name Farfugium 'Bad Hair Day'. Farfugium 'Bad Hair Day' is somewhat similar to Farfugium 'Crispata' except the cresting is much more angular than the curvy cresting seen in Farfugium 'Crispata'. The foliage effect is that of a really bad hair day...quite remarkable for a non-artificial plant. In fall, the 18" wide clumps are topped with spikes of single yellow flowers.
