Ligularia 'King Kong'
Common name: Bigleaf Ligularia
Big lush shiny purple leaves emerge in spring.
Bright yellow orange daisy flowers in midsummer.
It is a slow grower so be patient. May take a couple of years to reach its mature height.
Grow with morning sun and afternoon shade for best results.
Works wonderful in woodland areas. Attracts butterflies. Deer resistant.
