Pests or Diseases: They are relatively untroubled by pests and diseases but like many herbaceous perennials the young, tender, emerging leaves can be damaged by slugs and snails in the spring.
Planting Instructions: May be planted in any well-drained soil that is light, acidic, chalky/alkaline and moist. Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2 inches below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly. Ligularias should be grown in fertile, deep, moist soil in dappled shade but with some protection from strong winds that may damage the inflorescences.
