Ligularia dentata ‘Britt-Marie Crawford’

Black-leaved Ligularia

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.317.570

A recent and amazing selection of Ligularia or Elephant Ears, this is a bold specimen perennial that needs a moist location. It forms a clump of large, rounded maroon-black leaves. Taller stems appear in midsummer, bearing clusters of bright golden orange daisy flowers. Superb for the back of the border, or at the waterside. An unusual centerpiece for a tub or large container. Both the flowers and leaves are great for cutting. Slugs can be troublesome. In warm summer regions plan to grow this in shade. A Heritage Perennials® Top 10 Perennial for 2006. USPP#16113: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
