I recently discovered another amazing Farfugium (Ligularia) that I can not live without, and am delighted to finally have enough to offer for sale at Peacock Horticultural Nursery.  Farfugiums (Leopard Plants) are interesting plants for the shade garden grown for their very unusual and dramatic leaf colors, shapes and forms.  They include  contorted leaf varieties such as Farfugium j. ‘Ryuto’, variegated varieties such as Farfugium ‘Argentea’ or F. ‘Aureomaculata’, and some with both contorted and variegated leaves.

‘Kaimon Dake’ is a wonderful new Japanese selection of Farfugium with new leaves emerging pure white to variegated green and white in spring, so dramatic against the older pure green leaves.  Later in the season, all leaves will become mostly green, with the whole process restarted every spring thereafter.  Each 1′ tall by 2′ wide clump will flower in the fall with yellow daisy-like flowers, however,  the beauty of these plants is in their foliage. 

Farfugium grow well in well drained, moist soil in your shade garden in USDA zones 7 – 10.  Other Farfugiums available at Peacock Horticultural Nursery include Farfugium j. ‘Shishi Botan’ and F. ‘Ryuto’.
