Ligularia stenocephala 'The Rocket'
|A big, bold specimen perennial that produces a mound of large, toothed foliage. Large spikes of lemony yellow flowers on purplish stems are carried above the heart-shaped foliage in mid-summer. Performs at its best when planted in cool, wet areas.
|Keep soil moist to wet.
|Reaches 5 to 6 feet tall and 5 feet wide
|A robust perennial essential to the mixed border and back of perennial beds. Attractive massed in a woodland setting. Linear planting creates a striking seasonal hedge-like mass. Single plants become large enough for a focal point or surround for art. Naturalizes well around water features, streambeds or pools, and provides solutions for low, damp spots. Component of cutting gardens, both foliage and flowers.
|Grow ligularia with other moisture lovers such as Glowlight Louisiana Iris, (Iris louisiana 'Glowlight'), Tropicanna Canna, (Canna indica 'Phasion'), Golden Japanese Sweet Flag, (Acorus gramineus 'Ogon') and Evergreen Solomon's Seal, (Disporopsis pernyi).
|Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Prune old flower heads to encourage more blossoms.
|In Japan the plant is known as Metakaraku, which means "sweet smelling roots".
