Best used in partial sun landscapes.
Ligularia, ‘Przewalskii’ (pronounced Jevalski) is a gorgeous ornamental choice for a sunny spot in moist soil. This Ligularia is equally statuesque with tall yellow flower spikes above deeply toothed and lobed dark green leaves on purple-black stems. Forms a large clump of distinctive, palm-like foliage set with tall dark purple stems bearing golden-yellow blooms. Stunning in a group. Looks exotic and tropical. Like all Ligularia, this is an outstanding foliage plant that looks great even without its flashy flowers. Thrives in a very moist location.
Best in a rich, moist soil. Very impressive planted in groups or as a background in the perennial border. Though it does as well in well-drained soil, just as long as it never entirely dries out. Ligularia is also a true bog plant and can have water up to the head of the root without harm.
Ligularias are at their best when grown in cool, moist locations in part shade. Protect from hot afternoon sun. Required constant moisture.
Planting Instructions: May be planted in any well-drained soil. Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2 inches below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly. Ligularias should be grown in fertile, deep, moist soil in dappled shade but with some protection from strong winds that may damage the inflorescences.
Pests or Diseases: They are relatively untroubled by pests and diseases but like many herbaceous perennials the young, tender, emerging leaves can be damaged by slugs and snails in the spring.
