These bulky shade perennials are some of the largest hardy plants out there. They add a drama to the garden that is unmatched. It's important to remember that many of the dark-leaved varieties of ligularia eventually fade to green as the summer progresses, so keep this in mind when pairing them up with other players. The following gallery highlights some of the most interesting ligularias you'll see at the nursery. For more information on these beauties, check out Richard Hawke's article, "Which Ligularia Will Make Your Shade Really Shine?" published in the March/April 2013 issue of Fine Gardening.

Size: 34 inches tall and 40 inches wide
