Ligularia Rocket Yellow Flowers on Black Stems
A plant of contrasts, The Rocket has jet black flower stems and bright yellow flowers that emerge through a carpet of basal light green leaves.

Leopard plant  (Ligularia stenocephala) is grown for its broad foliage as well as its rocket-like flower spikes, which appear for a long period during the summer. It thrives in moist soil and light or afternoon shade and wilts in afternoon sun, especially in the Southeast.
