    "Ligularia (leopard plant) is a genus of about 150 species of robust Old World herbaceous perennial plants in the family Asteraceae. They have yellow or orange composite flower heads with brown or yellow central disc florets, and are native to damp habitats mostly in central and eastern Asia, with a few species from Europe. The name Ligularia, from the Latin for "strap", refers to the shape of the ray florets.

    Some species are cultivated as ornamentals. The cultivars 'Gregynog Gold' and 'The Rocket' have gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit."
