Leopard Plant Overview
Ligularia veitchiana originally from central China is a beautiful perennial that produces striking large mid-green heart-shaped foliage and in summer tall spikes of lemon-yellow flowers. These plants are perfectly at home in damp soil and if you have large spaces of boggy areas, allow them to spread to provide attractive ground cover. These flower spikes are shorter and more conical in shape than other Ligularia species, however, they produce as much nectar and/or pollen making them a great choice for encouraging pollinating insect wildlife into your garden!
