This has long been our favorite of the cold-loving ligularias, and one of the very few that we can actually grow this far south. The giant glossy green, deer-resistant leaves look like a cross between a finely-cut hardy geranium and a giant acanthus. In early summer the 3' tall x 4' wide tropical-looking clumps are topped with 5' tall spikes of bright orange daisies. For cold climate gardeners who love the tropical look, Ligularia japonica is a must. Ligularia japonica prefers a moist, rich garden soil.
