Growing & Maintenance Tips for Ligularia stenocephala 'The Rocket'

Ligularias are at their best when grown in, cool, moist locations in part shade. Protection from the hot, afternoon sun in the south is essential to prevent wilting. They are a natural for the pond side where there is a constant supply of moisture, though they do require good drainage.
