  2. hard to beat that one. I struggle with them in Kansas, especially the rocket. thinking of planting them in a bog. The rocket is dead but my dentata varieties are living but not thriving..

  3. What a facinating yellow flower! I love how you captured them. I really like the picture with the dark background.

  4. Thank you everyone!
    Greggo, my plant has part shade (or part sun?). Sometimes, it gets pretty hot on that flowerbed, and soil is not always moist, as they recommend. The plant is about 5 years old, well established. I think you have a good idea about a bog.

  5. Great photos. We had the Ligularia in the Learning Garden in VA. It was shady moist areas. Yours looks quite happy.

  6. Love ligularia, but this year for the first time mine are struggling some because of the heat/drought. Just hope they pull through to live another day. Hopefully next year we won't be breaking heat records.

  7. Tatyana, great portrait of a very interesting plant! Your photos are stunning! I had never heard of this plant before I read your post about it and I adore it. The leaves are so beautiful and I like that it has also some bigger leaves very close to the flowers. I guess, it is too hot here in San Diego to grow it. Too bad! But I am glad that I can enjoy it on your blog!

  8. Tatyana,great shots of your fabulous Ligularia. We also have them in the garden but the leaves always get destroyed with the slugs. I really do admire the large photos on your posts. My son in law says that my site will be very slow to open if I continue adding large pics. I have to say access is very quick on your site. Did you do something to address this problem.

  10. Thank you, my dear virtual friends!
    As I said above, I stopped answering here, since most of the people never come back. Instead, I go to your blogs. But, I want to answer Alistair's question. Yes, I did (or didn'do) several things: didn't install music and links that very few readers would use, removed unnecessary gadgets, reduced the blog's header picture, left only items directly related to my blog. I am very glad to hear that my blog opens fast! Thanks for the feedback, Alistair!!!

  11. Gorgeous. I had some baby ones, but between the drought and a trench I had to dig around them, I think they are toast. :( Now I know what I'm missing, I miss them even more!

  12. Love the color against the dark stalk. I bet it's pretty even before it blooms.
