Ligularia 'Hey, Mr. Wilson' is a 2021 Plant Delights/JLBG introduction of a plant that really excites us, since we have quite a bit of trouble growing most ligularias, due to our heat and humidity. This compact Ligularia japonica hybrid comes to us from Tennessee plantsman, Robert Wilson. In our garden, Ligularia 'Hey, Mr. Wilson' forms a compact, 30" tall bold-textured clump of deeply cut, glossy green foliage. In early June (NC) 3' tall spikes are topped with clusters of 3.5" wide golden-orange daisies. Moist-to-average garden soils and light shade, to a few hours of morning sun, are best.
