Hi there, I have these plants growing on the side of my driveway which I assume are exotics. I've had a go using the LUCID key on the Landcare Research website but I can't seem to narrow it down. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Regards, Kev.

Ligularia, and yes it is an exotic. Grown as much for the attractive leaves as for the flower I think. Some leaves have spots hence 'leopard plant'

Thanks Mike, that's great. I can do a bit of further reading now.

Mike is correct Ligularia reniforms (vernacular - 'Leopard Plant'). Quite widely cultivated, I have yet to see it self-establishing and this is why you would not have found it in the LUCID key of Landcare Research.
