(syn: Ligularia tussilaginea 'Crispata') This is the very rare and much sought-after crested form of the leopard plant. The leaves are green but covered with grey-brown hairs. The leaf edges have an absolutely incredible ruffling...sort of like what you'd get if you put too much activator on an afro hairdo. In early fall, the tall stems of yellow daisy-like flowers arise from the clump...this is absolutely fabulous!
