Ligularia

This moisture-loving member of the Asteraceae family is native to most of eastern Asia and named for its “tongue-shaped” leaves. Whether planted as a specimen or en masse in a semishaded border, on the forest’s edge or by water, Ligularia will dazzle onlookers with its lush foliage and showy flowers

While stenocephala refers to the “narrow-headed flower,” ‘The Rocket’ sums up even better the form of this Ligularia, as well as the charged energy it inspires. The large leaves are kelly-green, heart-shaped, and feature coarsely serrated margins. Strong shoots emerge in the spring, which unfurl to create an underlayer of verdant leaves for the clear yellow racemes to blast through on their way to altitudes of 5 ft. Striking and easily grown, it will sparkle in a wooded setting with Rodgersia nearby, or at water’s edge.

Blooms July–August.

Size: 5' 0" high x 3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.
