Go Back Ligularia Britt-Marie Crawford

Ligularia dentata 'Britt-Marie Crawford'
Deer Resistant Icon

Plant Type: Perennials

A recent and amazing selection of Ligularia or Elephant Ears, this is a bold specimen perennial that needs a moist location. It forms a clump of large, rounded maroon-black leaves. Taller stems appear in midsummer, bearing clusters of bright golden orange daisy flowers. Superb for the back of the border, or at the waterside. An unusual centerpiece for a tub or large container. Both the flowers and leaves are great for cutting.
