The gray green leaves of Farfugium japonicum 'Shishi Botan' have a ruffled appearance. Some say they are parsley-like in appearance, however, they are thick in substance and are fuzzy to the touch. In cooler climates, Farfugium do not have a long enough warm season to bloom and will often freeze back to the ground in winter. In more temperate climates, gardeners are treated to a lovely display of yellow daisy-like flowers, often in October and early November. In Japan they are seen in parks near ponds and water-ways. And it is not uncommon to find them in containers at front entries brightening the arrival of autumn visitors.
