Ligularia Leopard Plant
Leopard plant is the common name for more than 150 species of the Ligularia genus. They are herbaceous perennials with yellow flowers and, in some cases, very large leaves. The common name originated with the spotted foliage found on some of the native species, though this feature doesn't exist on most of the cultivated varieties.
Most Ligularia species are native to China, a few to Eurasia. A relatively small number of species are commonly cultivated for garden use, especially L. dentanta, also known as bigleaf ligularia. Most of the garden varieties are cultivars of L. dentanta, or hybrid crosses between L. dentanta and other Ligularia species.
