Ligularia General Information

Ligularia are impressive specimen plants that produce large masses of foliage sporting showy flowers. Dried flower heads attract goldfinches. Not for Gulf states. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Ligularia Plant Care

Prefers consistently moist, compost rich soil and light shade. Can be divided in spring as needed. Spent foliage can be removed as needed and should be cut back in fall to avoid mushy foliage.

Plantable Pots

Our plants are grown in 3.5x3.5x4” plantable pots. Made from 100% biodegradable coconut husk fibers (coir), these pots have tremendous advantages over plastic pots. With better air exchange, this "breathable" pot fosters robust root growth and reduces transplant shock since you can plant the pots directly in the ground. The pot naturally becomes part of the soil on its own over time—no composting required—and since they're made from a renewable resource that requires very little energy, they're earth-friendly too!

100% Guarantee

We offer a 100% unconditional guarantee for all our perennials to reach you in good condition and to grow. If you're not satisfied, we'll reship or refund immediately. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns—we share your passion for gardening and want your new plants to thrive in your border!
