The Ligularia is dominating my garden right now with 16 bloom pods. That’s a record for this fifth summer plant.
Walking into the backyard, eyes are drawn right to it. This colorful summer display is especially surprising because I cut the plant in half last January. I’ve been more aggressive this summer about pruning back the massive leaves that are crowding other plants.
I pulled out the ladder for photos so you could get an aerial view of the spectacular blooms.
