They look great together - do you know which Ligularia this is?

Yes, Wagger. It is L. dentata "Osiris Fantaisie". Got this last year because I was impressed by the green uppersides and dark maroon/chocolate brown undersides. great when the leaves shimmer in a breeze. The golden flowers, are a bonus, too, of course. I have it in a "white chocolate" coloured glazed pot. :-)

You're welcome, Wagger. ;-)

Oh, Lori! I hope I won't be responsible for another buy, lol!! Hope you find it to add to your ligs (have noticed that you grow some of these wonderful plants).

I only have two varieties, David. (it looks like I may have three before long...thanks : - ) -- another plant I like more and more and have started to collect different var's (have two of these so far) is mullein... both ligs and mulleins have yellow flowers... sure makes for sunny days!

Well, guess what I just found, Lori ?

Verbascum "Caribbean Crush".

I have noticed this one at the shows the last 2 years, but never found it for retail anywhere. Lo and Behold! Was at a GC the other day for (yet more) seed-sowing compost, and there it was!! Hope I get some blooms this year, as has been at the back of my mind since we started this Pirates venture.

:-))
