Ligularia-Golden Groundsel, Leopard Plant

Ligularia or Leopard Plant is propagated in the spring or fall by dividing the roots preferably with a spade unless you are rugged. It is in the Chrysanthemum family and the plant reaches a height of 3'-4' and should be planted in an area that gets afternoon shade and moisture, however it will tolerate full sun but it is not hardy below Zone 4. It is evergreen and it blooms can be either yellow, orange, or vermillion and will bloom all summer until fall. It is happiest in a bog setting and is deer resistant.
