(syn: Ligularia tussilaginea) Wonderful perennial for moist, but well drained conditions actually all but the driest of sites will be successful. The 10" rounded glossy green leaves make a truly spectacular bold foliaged clump. In October and November, 30" tall, very showy stalks of chrysanthemum-like yellow daisies arise for a dynamite show. Protect from prolonged afternoon sun for best effect... an unknown gem!
