Myriam, someone noticed that the leaves on this shot are quite different from the other images, including another one of yours.

Interesting yes that's right they do differ!
This photo in question is from a plant I received from our Super Sleuth Janet(JRsbugs) after I had lost mine. I'm sure Janet is correct with Id's like you probably know.. Hilarious!
Or maybe I'm wrong and forgot how she called the plant meant to replace my L.przewalskii..

The plant I had lost came from a Belgian nursery labeled as L.przewalskii, pictured in this photo from 2007 and agreeing with other member's photos.


When googling the plant you can find both forms of leaves, so I guess it is variable?

Now I'm getting confused:
some photos of the plant with entire leaves:

http://www.infotalia.com/nld/tuin/plantengids_plant.asp?plan...
https://www.google.be/search?q=ligularia+przewalskii&espv=2&...
In this one called as cultivar L.przewalsky "Little Rocket"
http://www.lavieenrosegardens.com/product/ligularia-przewals...

I think it could be Ligularia stenocephala:

That's what I was thinking, I came across this one of Ligularia stenocephala.

Janet. @JRsbugs, any input with this would be super appreciated!

I bought this as Ligularia przewalskii from a catalogue, don't remember which but at the time the other one Ligularia stenocephala was being sold everywhere with the cut leaves and I preferred the entire leaves with jagged edges. Hilarious!

Look at the sites you would expect to be correct, I know several places used to use the wrong photo for selling Ligularia stenocephala.

Purdue University ...

It might have been called Ligularia "The Rocket" which has a synonym of Ligularia przewalskii 'The Rocket'. This is what it looks like on the RHS and I feel sure this is my plant which was probably sold as Ligularia przewalskii 'The Rocket' with "The Rocket" probably seeming to me at the time as a common name as I bought it probably around the year 2000 when paper catalogues were the main source.

Look at the photo of Ligularia przewalskii on the RHS, the leaves are smaller but similar and maybe look a bit more jagged on the edges but they don't look like Ligularia stenocephala which is what some sites are listing "The Rocket" as.

https://www.rhs.org.uk/Plants/23892/Ligularia-przewalskii/De...

So, I think this is Ligularia "The Rocket".

There's another called Ligularia przewalskii 'Dragon Wings' which has deeply cut leaves and was new in 2014.

https://www.rhs.org.uk/Plants/333016/Ligularia-przewalskii-D...

https://www.rhs.org.uk/plants/plants-blogs/plants/September-...

Definitely Ligularia ‘The Rocket’ but I don't know how it came to be, it's lost it's species name so is probably a hybrid (maybe some research on that is in order!)

We have lots of photos of Leopard Plant (Ligularia 'The Rocket')
It sure seems to resemble it.
