DORONICUM orientale ‘Leonardo Compact’

Leopard’s Bane –

0242 One of the earliest spring bloomers with attractive toothed foliage and semi-double, daisy-like flowers. Excellent plant for under shrubs and trees if the soil is kept moist in the summer. Blossoms are 2-3”. Good for cut flowers.

This is a smaller, more compact version of the original. In mid to late spring, single, yellow, daisy-like flowers are produced on bare stems above the rosette of green foliage. This is a very uniform plant, so it works well as an edging, in containers, or in small spaces.

Companion Plants
Hosta – Hostas pair nicely with leopard’s bane. Both prefer moist shade, and hostas will spread to fill the holes left by dormant leopard’s bane foliage through the summer.
Impatiens – Add season-long color to shady spots in your yard with bright impatiens to fill in the gap after leopard’s bane finishes flowering.
Daffodil, double hybrids – Create a spring show by planting cheery daffodils or other spring-blooming bulbs with leopard’s bane.
