'Othello' is a striking plant for a damp border or beside a pond. It almost counts as a dual purpose plant: the foliage is large and kidney-shaped, purple-tinted with mahogany backs, and the flowers are large, shaggy, narrow-petalled orange-yellow daisies which appear in loose, flat-topped sprays in mid-summer. Like most ligularias, it is not a particularly sophisticated plant, but planted in large drifts with other species beside ponds or in a large border, they create a very good effect.
Looks good with:Hypericum 'Hidcote'
