The ligularia are a genus of large leaf thirsty perennials. Britt marie crawford is a standout with its deep red foliage and yellow daisy flowers in autumn. I was given my plant by a client who had a huge clump growing in a half wine barrel. This is a plant very suited to pot culture provided its given plenty of food and water over the growing season. All of my plants are produced from division which ensures the stability of leaf colour.
