Packera obovata, roundleaf ragwort, is herbaceous perennial that easily grows in average, moist, well-drained soils. In addition, it grows well in full sun to part shade but blooms are most abundant in shady locations. Roundleaf ragwort naturalized swiftly and produces brilliant, daisy-like yellow flowers throughout the spring. The stems of the flowers can grow up to 18 inches tall, and the leaves grow about 2 to 4 inches long. The foliage is semi-evergreen and can be used as an attractive ground cover.
Another exciting new addition for 2022! Our customers and clients love this plant’s popular cousin Packera aurea for its ability to quickly fill in troublesome shady areas with dense, evergreen groundcover. Packera obovata looks very similar, but can withstand drier, full-sun conditions. -Jessica
The flush of early color from Packera is always wonderful for gardeners and pollinators! Packera obovata is the larval host of the Northern Metalmark butterfly, a species listed as threatened in Maryland. – Cianna
