Gargantuan burgundy-purple, leathery leaves twice as large as other varieties at 16 across create an amazing special effect. Golden-orange, daisy-like flowers heighten its powerful stature to 4. Both foliage and flowers are stunning in bouquets. Plant with some morning sun for best purple tones.

Ligularia King Kong will take a few growing seasons to reach its mature height, but so worth the wait! A bold statement, its a natural for along a pond or stream; however, Ligularia do require good drainage.

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.

Ligularia Plant Care
