That's a beautiful display. Is it Leopard Plant (Ligularia 'The Rocket') ?

Thank you for noticing my submission and the suggestion of the specific name. I am reluctant to label this plant and some others that I submit as I don't find the "exact" specifications of my photographed plant, or am overwhelmed by the choices. So I presume just to give it the generic name, I won't be misleading. I will do the description comparison that you suggest and correct the naming. Being the gardener seems to trump being the botanist librarian in me.

You did exactly the right thing Fleur. I was curious because The Rocket is just now coming into bloom here and, with luck, will look something like your photo in a few years.
