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! :-)

Took some better photos. Also took one of backside of leaf. I hope these survive the winter, I want more of them. They are the last flower blooming in my shade garden.

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.

Well whatever it is -- it is in now in the process of sending up new leaves, made it through another(3rd) cold winter here in Newburgh, Indiana 47630.

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

Newburgh, IN(Zone 6a)

I think it is the Last Dance yes. But I was told it would not grow here. So I guess I have a very hardy one, LOL. I am going to call it that until told otherwise. Thanks a lot for your input.
Added a picture taken of it under the snow.
