Plant Details

Leopard's bane is one of the few daisy family members to bloom in spring, and usually manages to coincide with the last of the daffodils. It's an easy-going plant, useful for getting a flower border off to an early start, or for growing towards the front of a shrub border. Since its foliage appears early, clumps may be grown in front of large hybrid daffodils to mask the foliage while it dies down . They also look good teamed with cowslips on a grassy bank to create a natural spring display. Try contrasting it with scarlet tulips.

Bright and cheerful yellow daisies in spring. Spreads gracefully into a good sized clump.

A good plant for a mixed border or woodland garden as it is happy in dappled shade.

Height and spread: 60cm x 60cm

Common name(s): Leopard's bane

All our plants are supplied in 9x10cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
