Ligularia has a beautiful deep burgundy foliage that keeps its beauty all season long. Its large leathery leaves fan out, and create some depth to any bed. Come midsummer they explode in shades of bright yellow and gold daisy flowers. They thrive in waterlogged, boggy areas along streams or bodies of water. It is a cold hardy perennial, and can tolerate a variety of light conditions, and can handle clay or loamy soils.
