Most Leopard Plants are noted more for their large, showy leaves than for flowers, so 'Little Rocket' (aka Golden Ray) is something of an exception. Yes, it has large, saw-tooth edged leaves that form a striking green mound, two to three feet tall and wide, but we think this shade-loving perennial was named for its missile-like flower stalks that shoot straight up above the foliage from mid- to late summer. Bright yellow flower spikes attract pollinators and make great cut flowers. This variety is smaller than its cousins, but has similar environmental needs - shade for most of the day, especially in the afternoon, and regular water. Small enough to grow in large containers, 'Little Rocket' will catch the eye in woodland settings, along ponds, and any shady spot that needs a bit of drama.
