Commonly known as a Leopard Plant this perennial has large glossy heart-shaped leaves that resemble lily pads. They can reach a mature height of 3-4 feet and spread up to 2-3 feet wide. Beautiful yellow daisy-like flowers rise above the leaves on multi-branched stems from late summer thru fall and even winter in more temperate climates.
They grow best in Zones 7-10 when planted in partial to full shade and require moist, but well-drained soil. Plant in large moveable containers in cooler zones or in shady beds in warmer zones. The tops will die back when temperatures drop below 20 degrees, but sprout back when spring temperatures stabilize.
