Dichondra maybe? I think probably not since the leaves in your photo look way to large for any I've seen, but aside from the size, that's what it brings to mind. Maybe something in the same family? What is the growth habit? Flat, like a ground cover?

I think it is Leopard Plant. The leaves are rolled back, but I guess that's because they are new growth. Thanks for the help, needrain and purpleinopp! Now to determine whether it's japonicum or ligularia. I want to order one!

I will go with Farfugium japonicum for my order. Thumbs up Another synonym is Senecio kaempferi. My confusion was seeing it listed just as Lingularia when I started looking.

If you're making an order you might look at the variegated varieties. Shrug!

I have this i my yard. Leopard Plant has yellow spots on the leaves, hence the name. We call this one Fargugium japonicum Giaganteum.

I have one with giant leaves larger than a dinner plate. And a smaller variety more like a salad plate.

I have two that I planted about 4 years ago. When I bought them they were labeled "Giant Ligularia". I read a year or so ago they were renaming/reclassifying them, but I don't recall the new name. I also bought a "crusted ligularia".

Yes, I forgot to say that our database shows Ligularia as a synonym.
