Winter Wonder - Farfugium

Farfugium japonicum var. giganteumMany of you may have never seen this wonderful plant or you have, in awe, and said, "What darn plant is that?"

And, if you have seen one, you may not have seen it showing off those tall stalks full with panicles of yellow daisy-like flowers.

Well, this is Farfugium japonicum var. giganteum - also known as giant leopard plant.

You don't see many in these parts, but the ones I have seen all look healthy and beautiful, particularly this time of year - definitely enough reason to find some for your property(s).

They are perennials and the flowering takes place during the late fall and/or winter. Oh, they love water more so than any other plants, so plan to do so or have an irrigation system to take care of this for you.
