Ligularia cultivar with longest bloom time?

Any ideas if one of the Ligularia cultivars/varieties has a significantly longer bloom time than others?
Thanks!

grow gigantea and crested leopard and they bloom about two weeks. Gigantea is more floriferous but it has also been growing longer in my garden. I thought people grew ligs for foliage, not blooms, though they are prettyl

I really like the bright yellow blooms which very much brighten up a shady locale. This season has been exceptional for Ligs with all the wet weather and cooler temps.

Seeing a grouping of 7 or more in bloom will convince you they are so much more than foliage.
