Originating from China
Slender, vertical, black stems hold wands of bright yellow flowers from June to September, over clumps of large, deeply cut dark green leaves up to 30cm across. Ligularia przewalskii prefers a rich moist soil in part shade but will tolerate a slightly drier soil in full shade.
