Hieracium maculatum ‘Leopard’

Spotted Hawkweed

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.271.100

An ornamental and non-weedy selection, this forms a low mound of stunning blue-green leaves, dappled and flecked with rich maroon purple. Taller stems of bright yellow ragged daisies appear in early summer. The blooms look a fair bit like dandelions and may be removed if desired. Good choice for edging, in the rock garden or in mixed containers and tubs. Will self seed gently around and come back true to form. colour is best with direct sun. Combines beautifully with purple-leaved companions, such as Bronze Fennel or Sedum.
