(aka: Ligularia tussilaginea) This unusual Japanese selection of leopard plant could easily have been named "snow leopard." Farfugium 'Kaimon Dake' emerges with large white leaves, each highlighted with a random pattern of central dark green specks...sort of like a cheap flat screen television after the warranty expires. The aging foliage eventually turns solid green which gives the clump a surprising amount of vigor. This cultivar does not like deep shade, actually preferring an hour or two of sun daily. Each 1' tall x 2' wide clump is topped by 2' tall stalks of yellow daisies in fall...a superb specimen plant we can offer thanks to our friend, Barry Yinger.
