I am pretty sure this is a Bigleaf Ligularia but not sure which variety. Please help. Thank you.
It sure does look like Ligularia 'dentata'. I was at first going to say 'Desdemona', but it looks more similar to 'Othello' to me.
Leaf shape is wrong for any cultivar of Ligularia dentata.
Could it be Farfugium japonicum?
I suspect you are right alta. Oops….I should have looked closer! Never mind! :-)
Now that the leaves are off the Maples and Oaks this now gets some afternoon sun.
Looked up the Farfugium japonicum and I think that must be it. Thanks
I opened this again because I just checked my garden beds after a week of below 20 degrees and it is still green. People tell me there is no variety that survives here. What should I do to get an ID. I did collect some seeds and plan to start them to see what I get. Any suggestions? I even took a picture of it with 5 inches of snow on it.
Interesting... how about Ligularia x farfugium 'Last Dance'?
The patent info suggests hardiness in zones 5 through 10... though with new plants, this may not have been tested thoroughly.

So... do you think it is not what was suggested (Ligularia x farfugium 'Last Dance')?
