Doronicum cordatum

Leopard's Bane

These easy-to-grow, spring-blooming perennials have showy, yellow, Daisy-like flowers on long stalks with heart-shaped leaves. Great cut flowers. Plant in borders with other perennials where nearby foliage hides dying summer leaves. Also good with tulips. Like partial shade in hot climates or northern climates, and tolerate heavy soil. The common name refers to the Asian natives' practice of dipping arrows in its juices when hunting leopards. Start by seed or division. Young plants bloom most generously. Remove old flowers to encourage second bloom. Divide every 2 to 3 years in August or spring, when plants are dormant.
