Ligularia dentata ‘Britt-Marie Crawford’
at Digging Dog

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

Ligularia dentata ‘Britt-Marie Crawford’ partial shade  shade lover

The scrumptious and bold gathering of huge kidney-shaped coarsely toothed leaves, each spanning over a foot across, adopts a swank dark chocolaty maroon polish. Manifesting purple undersides, the lavish foliage needs morning sun to retain its rich coloration, otherwise they turn more green as summer progresses. Hefty purplish black stems hoist daring golden orange daisy-like flowers about a foot aloft the lush leafy foundation. This tropical-looking ‘Othello’ sport emphasizes extraordinary texture, thwarts those pesky deer and luxuriates in cool moist recesses with shelter from hot afternoon sun. (PP#16,113)

Size: 3' 0" high x 2' 0"–3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.
