Ligularia przewalskii - Golden ray
This is a bold specimen perennial that prefer a damp location. Plants form a clump of large, rounded dark-green palmate leaves
Taller stems appear in June, bearing clusters of bright golden orange daisy flowers. Superb for the back of the border, or at the waterside. An unusual centerpiece for a tub or large container. Both the flowers and leaves are good for floristry.
