Farfugium japonicum 'Giganteum' (Giant Leopard Plant) slide #14494
L. Reiners Gdn, CA

Farfugium japonicum 'Giganteum' (Giant Leopard Plant)

Part Sun to ShadeZone: 8-10 20" tall Origin: China, Japan, Korea

(aka: Ligularia tussilaginea 'Gigantea', Farfugium reniforme) Tropicalissimo at its finest! This is one of those rare treasures for plant geeks who may offer their first-born in exchange. Thanks to Marco Stufano of Wave Hill for sharing with us so we can finally make this gem available. Essentially, F. 'Gigantea' is similar to the species, except for the giant size of each leaf...nearly 15" across and so thick and glossy that it doesn't seem real. Each attention-drawing, 30" wide clump is topped in fall with stalks of bright yellow daisies, but grow this one for its leaves. It prefers a slightly moist but well-drained site in the woodland garden. A great centerpiece for a dynamic container planting in colder regions! Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml)
