Ligularia stenocephalia

Ligularia stenocephalia (Ligularia stenocephala)

My Lig is showing the characteristic black buds soon to be bright with yellow bloom. A strong show after wintering through -50F last winter.

I have one in flower now for the first time. I planted it last year and just got lots of growth, this year though four large flower spikes.
There are a few pics on my page.

I'll go have a look. I just love them. Nice interesting foliage and the dark stems really show off the flowers. I don't think I could ever go without them again. :-)

SK, I lost some but had this, my ferns and the azaleas (though they died to the ground) come through. Most surprizing, one of the bedding dainthus from a sixpack last year came through fine, just started blooming again. I have a blog from december called cold snap if you'd like to cool off one day. :-)

I hear that. My delphinium is just starting up and liatris to follow, both suseptable to the winds and rain of a storm.

I hope they recover well for you.
