(aka: Ligularia tussilaginea 'Kagami Jishi') Farfugium 'Kagami Jishi' is a Japanese leopard plant selection that has the same yellow-spotted leaves of Farfugium 'Aureomaculata' but with the added leaf undulations found in Farfugium 'Crispatum'. This stunning specimen plant is topped in October with 2' tall sprays of large, yellow, daisy-like flowers at a time when bees and butterflies find them most welcome. Farfugium 'Kagami Jishi' performs best in moist, rich soils with good drainage and also makes a superb container houseplant. Unlike its cousin, ligularia, farfugium does not like to grow in damp, boggy conditions.
