Tractor Seat Plant (Ligularia gigantea)

This lush perennial with stunning large foliage is commonly known as the "tractor seat" plant due to the unusual shape of its glossy leaves. It has a distinctive tropical vibe and can be happily grown as an indoor plant. It is also great for shady style gardens, pots, containers and mass plantings. It prefers a part shade to full shade position with moist but well-draining soil. It will often produce a beautiful golden flower in summer.

 
*As plants are natural products, form, pattern and colour will vary slightly.

*Larger pot sizes (Size 4 and above) are ONLY available for Local Pickup or Local Delivery within 5km of our stores.
