Description: Farfugium, or tractor seat plant, has become an essential ingredient in elegant lush gardens. Whether planted in heavily mulched shade or near a water feature, it will need regular frequent water. Over the years it will reseed to form a number of clumps which in fall will be topped with bright yellow daisy-like flowers, followed by puffy spheres of seeds each to be carried by the wind.
