Ligularia 'Shishi Botan' has bold, green, frilly, wavy leaves that provide great texture in the border. Its cheery yellow, daisy-like blooms appear in fall. Ligularia japonica 'Shishi Botan' can tolerate our heat and humidity better than most Ligularia. This uncommon perennial plant will attract lots of attention whether in the border or in a container.
Ligularia 'Shishi Botan' prefers moist, humus-rich, well-draining soil that does not dry out in summer. It will wilt if the soil dries out, but usually recovers if given a good soaking.
