This classic clone of Farfugium is still unsurpassed in beauty. Leaves show many different hues of white. This variegated 'Argenteum' adds light to a shady spot in the garden. It has been around for more than a century but it is still only grown by specialized nurseries because it is slower than other cultivars.

This species is native to coastal Japan. The large leaves are very ornamental and the tall, yellow, daisy-like flowers are a nice addition. Farfugium grows well in many different conditions, ranging from temperate to subtropical climates. It stands frost to about -14 Cm but it still grows well here in Tenerife, where we seldom go below +14 C !  It was formerly classified in a different plant genus and it was named Ligularia tussilaginea. If you live in the Mediterranean keep it well irrigated in summer when the heat comes in!
