I am Leopard Plant. My family originated from Japan

Botanic Name: Ligularia dentata ‘Pandora’

Mounding – Thrives in shady locatons

I feature large purple to chocolate broard glossy leaves and look lush with a clumping naturally rounded form.

My blooms are bright yellow and daisy on upright stems that create striking contrast with my lush foliage and appear from late summer into autumn.

I thrive in moist well drained soils, but also tolerate poor soils.

I am ideal as an indoor plant.

Planted out in the garden I do best in a sheltered location, but enjoy full sun to part shade.

I am great at creating an impact indoors and in tropical and ‘Lush” style gardens.
