The one with the Polish name! Rather differently shaped leaves than its cousin L. dentata (deeply cut, palmate, in a lighter shade of green) but still useful as a foliage plant. It flowers earlier (starting late June), on a much more upright stalk. This year I noticed the interesting baby flowerstalk. Digital photography sure makes me look more closely at my garden :-)
||In mid-August, the leaves start turning purple.
This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...

|Maisie Sirois||Jul 12, 2005||We have some of these Ligularia przewalskii newly planted in a mulch bed. Some of the leave edges are turning black.
Would like to know if you have run into that problem before and if so what was your cure.|
|jacque||Jul 21, 2006||maisie these plants like most soil maybe thats your problem. Rob do you save seeds from this plant?|
I have yet to collect a single viable seed from my ligularias. Probably because I grow just a single specimen of each of my species. I personally grew both of them from traded seed, so I know it can be done :-)
|Grazyna Grace Piekosz||Apr 23, 2008||Fantastic name and plant|
|Lori||Apr 22, 2010||I have Lig. Gregynog Gold and Przwalskii...the Gregynog gold has daisylike flowers and flowers in August...I have had these self seed. However, the new plants are very invasive...and do not exhibit the beautiful deep maroon undersides on the leaves and on the stems... (at least, not in the first season) |
|Hugh Coe||Sep 26, 2011||Planted the similar cultivars "Dragon Wings" and "Dragon's Breath." Original site proved too sunny -- leaf scald; moved to full shade with constant moisture. On emergence, new foliage turns black and withers. Lack of moisture not an issue. No such trouble on broadleaved Ligularias, which have thrived for years. Diagnosis, anyone??|
- Seed from '09 trade. Seed seemed flimsy, with only a few particles substantial enough to be viable. Baggy 70F (a few G, 8-18d)
