Farfugium japonicum 'Escargot' is a large-growing hybrid of Farfugium japonicum 'Giganteum' and Farfugium japonicum 'Aureomaculatum', discovered by the late Gary Hammer and shared by California plantsman, Lance Reiners. The large 10" wide, large, green leaves form a large 20" tall x 3' wide clump topped, starting in late October, with 3' tall spikes of bright yellow daisies. Farfugium 'Escargot' has some of the largest foliage of any farfugium we grow, while also possessing unique overlapping leaf lobes which resemble the spirals of a snail...quite interesting!
