Saw this plant at the Atlanta Botanical Garden in December during Christmas lights. Was growing in a spot the appeared to get no sun. I have similar spots in my yard.

    It’s not ground ginger. Hard to tell from this picture, but the leaves are 12-15″ across. I agree it is farfugium. More specifically, Farfugium japonicum ‘Giganteum’ (Giant Leopard Plant). Thanks for the help!

    Is that a bloom stalk? Yellow flowers? I was thinking ligularia, until I googled farfugium…

    Ground ginger, perhaps?

    That’s Farfugium japonicum ( ). The main attraction is the foliage but it also produces heads of yellow daisy flowers in autumn.
