In our opinion, Ligularia are one of the most valuable perennials because it has all-season appeal! In summer masses of yellow flowers appear on spikes, and last for many weeks! An added bonus, the large leaves are a focal point in the garden all season long. Ligularia can be grown in regular garden soil, and can also tolerate boggy wet soils.

As with many perennial seeds, these seeds can benefit from a period of moist cold to help them break dormancy. This is done by giving them a cold 'winter' period (artificial or natural), and then a warming to simulate 'spring', and time to grow! Here's how this can be done:Obtain a planting container that has holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Place the seeds just under the surface of your growing medium, and water. Place your container in a cold area (but not freezing, perhaps a refrigerator) for 4-6 weeks. Once the cold period is completed, place the container at room temperature for them to germinate. Be sure to keep the soil moist during this entire germination period. Seedlings will sprout a few weeks after the warming period.
Ligularia seeds also do very well being planted directly outdoors in the fall, where they will naturally germinate in the spring. Be sure to mark where they are planted.
ABOUT THESE SEEDS
These seeds are stored in refrigeration until they are shipped to you, to maintain freshness and viability. As with most seeds, if you are not planting your seeds right away, they are best stored in a cool place, perhaps a refrigerator, until you are ready to plant them.
We grow many of our seeds ourselves, which helps ensure that your seeds are fresh and are true to variety!☺ Those that we cannot grow ourselves are obtained from very reputable suppliers.
Do not eat these seeds, or the plants that they produce! None of the seeds/plants that we offer are meant for human consumption, due to the fact that about 80% of all plant species are not edible (contain toxins/poisons of some kind) these are likely to be poisonous. The ONLY exception to our "Do not eat these seeds or plants" rule is the tomato fruit. Tomato fruit are edible, though all other parts of tomato plants are very poisonous. Really! Please do not eat the plants.☺
