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!
