Ligularia Britt Marie Crawford not growing - why?
I planted a really big and healthy Ligularia Britt Marie Crawford in my partial shade bed next to the Toba Hawthorn last year. It did great last year, except that it was very thirsty and wilted quite a bit. So I had to constantly water that thing! Anyway, it was beautiful and bloomed profusely. It was just quite a show-stopping, statement plant!
Unfortunately, this year, it took forever to show any sign of life after winter is gone. Even now, at the beginning of July, it still only has a few small leaves.
Does Ligularia BMC take forever to establish itself in zone 3? Is this very slow progress normal, or is it just telling me that I need to move it to another area where it may be happier?
I would very much appreciate your information and comments. Thanks!
