Synonyms[1]

Ligularia (leopard plant) is a genus of robust Old World herbaceous perennial plants in the groundsel tribe within the sunflower family.[3] They have yellow or orange composite flower heads with brown or yellow central disc florets, and are native to damp habitats mostly in central and eastern Asia, with a few species from Europe.[4] There are about 120[5] to 140 species in the genus, and over half are endemic to China.[6] The name Ligularia, from the Latin for "strap", refers to the shape of the ray florets.[7]

Some species are cultivated as ornamentals. The cultivars 'Gregynog Gold'[8] and 'The Rocket'[9] have gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.
