The dark yellow flowers of ligularia 'Brit Marie Crawford' explode with color in the shade. I love this plant.
The deep green leaves are supported with purple stems and looks beautiful on its own. The yellow/orange flowers emerging now are the gravy.
The plant is indestructible, thrives in shade and enjoys a good watering once a week. This season's rain has made it very happy.
After the flowers fade, the seed heads will put on a show through fall and into winter.
I originally threw these plants under a big Japanese maple where they struggled for a few seasons. Once they were moved to where they could enjoy a little rainfall, the plants thrived.
Either this fall or next spring I'm going to move one or two of these to a new spot. It's great to have a plant hitting its stride this time of the year.
'Britt Marie Crawford' is a winner that should find its way into most shade gardens.
