Ligularia x palmatiloba, Palm Leaf Ligularia, is a large vigourous hybrid, a cross bewtween Ligularia dentata and Ligularia japonica. It is an impressive plant with large toothy palmate foliage that creates a very dramatic and exotic atmosphere.

Like all Ligularias it needs a moist and ideally shady spot and will sulk and wilt if it dries out. It forms a clump in time and will occupy a damp location that other plants may struggle with.

The flowers divide opinion. They are large, orangey-yellow and daisy-like. A little too coarse for some tastes. Personally, I rather like them. They remind me of the flowers from another member of the Asteraceae, the genus Espeletia, from the high Páramo of the Columbian Andes. Absolutely magnificent plants. One should always beware of plant snobbery -  it is often the signature of a closed mind. However, it is probably for the jungle-like leaves that you will want to grow Ligularia x palmatiloba. Another absolutely magnificent plant.
