Ligularia Flowering

In the shady hosta garden under the Cabbage Tree I grow some Ligularias. These are the common type, whose bright orange flowers are as welcome as the round-leafed foliage.

 The leaves are a mixture of dark green colours.

These excellent plants are encouraged to self seed in my garden (though they could become quite a nuisance). I enjoy their rather bright daisy-like flowers. After flowering, they'll die down for the winter, and I'll cut the old stalks off.

 Beautiful veins!

The foliage leaves are rather beautiful, too. What do you think?
