The brilliant yellow, daisy-like double flowers of Doronicum Little Leo appear on short stems amid lush dark green, serrated, heart-shaped leaves. A mound of Little Leo grows about a foot high and just as wide. It gives stunning presentation when placed with forget-me-nots or spring blooming bulbs.
Doronicums are fine for cutting in early spring. One of the earliest blooming perennials and an excellent plant under shrubs and trees if the soil is kept moist in the summer.
Plant can be dormant in midsummer if dry, the foliage partially disappearing, and then returning. Best in light shade. Cut back by half after bloomimng to prevent re-seeding. Can be divided in early spring every 2-3 years.
