|'Little Rocket' blazing in the sun|
Even without its blooms, Ligularia has interesting shiny green leaves that remind me of a Heuchera. The leaves stay fresh looking all season a with consistent watering.
Ligularia likes moisture and doesn't mind partial shade. Mine get a few hours of morning sun and some indirect afternoon sun. This limited sun still fuels them enough for a magnificent explosion of color. My yellow rockets started launching around the Fourth of July and still had a few yellow blooms this past week.
Launch a few of these brilliant rockets in your garden to extend summer fireworks past Independence Day.
|Vegetation low enough for front of border, but flower spikes high enough to be highly visible|
|Sharp-edged leaves are an added attraction|
