(syn: Ligularia tussilaginea 'Ferris Wheel') This new selection of L. tussilaginea is a probable tetraploid form that we created here at PDN. Each large green leaf is nearly double the thickness of the species. The edge of each leaf also possesses a unique jagged appearance... most pronounced in late summer and early fall. In October and November, the clumps are topped with 20" scapes of golden yellow daisies.
