I planted mine in full shade a couple years ago. It did bloom, but not profusely, and not as much as the very showy Ligularia I saw on Martha's Vineyard in part-sun. The fact that it's still alive despite relative neglect is terrific. I'm planning to move it where it will get more sun, and need more attention.

I purchased this plant today and was surprised to see the tag that came with it stated exposure as Full Sun, I will plant it where it will get about 6hrs. of sun. I have 2 other type of Ligularia, which are planted in the shade, and are doing very good. I too would like to see comments on growing this plant.

I just planted one of these in a shade garden, hoping that it will make it despite only getting dappled sunlight instead of the 2-4 hours of sunlight recommended (part shade). Has anyone else tried one in a mostly shaded area?
