I agree with Robert 100 %.... but would like to note~~ first year leaf does not resemble parent, they are round with a scallop, second year are true.

I Love this plant!!

For an accent plant in a moist, shady area, this one is tops. I have two, both about ten years old and they are trouble free - no bugs, no diseases, just lots of beautiful exotic looking foliage and yellow, marigold-like flowers on tall stems produced mid to late summer, when the rest of the garden is winding down. It does like its water and will wilt if allowed to completely dry out but springs back when watered. Mine sailed through the worst winter we've had in a century and have even reseeded themselves just a bit. They come true to seed so you will have one or two more to spot around and enjoy. Nothing to dislike.
