Question: 514-1411
I just bought some Leopard plants. They are also known as Asian Ligularia? When can I plant them? Chris, Franklin, CT

Mort's Answer:
L.kaempferi aurea-maculata is grown primarily for its kidney shaped leaves. It has a light yellow flower that can be two inches on white wooly three foot stems. Leaves are pink blotched and hardy to zone eight. I would wait until May 15 and keep them as house plants in a south facing window until then, You will have to bring them indoors in the fall. You could try to store the roots like a dahlia for the winter.
