Ryutd or Lunar Landing Evergreen Ligularia. The Japanese have shows in which they exhibit this perennial in the "koten engei" fashion where they are displayed very formally in their exquisite highly decorated porcelain pots. Many cultivars sell in the hundreds of dollars. For an evergreen herbaceous perennial in the Deep South, this plant is hard to beat. One might say of this cultivar that this is a face that only a mother could love. This cultivar is grown for its overly bizarre incredibly contorted foliage which is always a source of conversation in the garden. In October, 2 ft. flower spikes begin to emerge which are topped with bright yellow daisies. Grow it in shade with good drainage but adequate moisture. This species will also make a great container plant.
