Gardeners fall in love with the heart-shaped shiny leaves of the Giant Leopard Plant or Farfugium Japonicum ‘Gigantea.’  Growing 5 to 18 inches across, the leaves rise up from the ground individually on 3 to 4 foot stalks.  In late summer through fall, yellow, daisy-like flowers bloom on the tall branched flower stems.

Native to Japan’s moist meadows, stream banks and coastal areas, the Giant Leopard Plant does not like all day shade, but prefers at least a couple of hours of sun, along with slightly moist but well-drained soil. It does brilliantly in the garden, or in a container.

Why others chose this plant.

Searched and searched for a decent size worth the price and found this site. Anxiously awaiting delivery. Will give follow up then

Saw a friends plant and needed to have one. Have a wonderful semi-shady damp/wet area for this beautiful plant.

For twice the price of a tiny plant in a 4" pot, I bought a HUGE plant that would have taken me nearly 3 years to grow!

I have an area next to a shared fence that was full shade and constantly wet from runoff of neighbors’ sprinkler system. I wanted to find a plant that could tolerate the conditions while also reducing the erosion and muddy conditions. This plant fit the bill with the added bonus of being absolutely beautiful to boot!
