(Ligularia dentata 'Britt Marie Crawford')
lig-yew-LAR-ee-ah den-TAY-tah
Genus:  Ligularia
In early spring, fleshy stems unfurl and are topped by rounded burgundy leaves. By June, this plant looks splendid, with upturned leaves and their rich purple undersides. 'Britt Marie Crawford' may wilt in the hot noonday sun, but soft shade soon revives it. At the start of summer, right golden daisy-like flowers bloom, contrasting boldly with the foliage. -Matt Griswold, Regional Picks: Northeast, Fine Gardening issue #127
Care:  Likes moist soil. Don't let it dry out between waterings.
