I got some trailing begonia like that, a lot was broke lost a couple plants as well.  At first I thought it was the supplier but after seeing the big dint in the box I change my mind. 

Which Ligularia?

It got me a little baffled as well, I think your right with B though. 

If you cant match it to the ones the nursery was selling I think Hostafan could be right with a przewalskii hybrid

I have a przewalskii the rocket according to it label but now I am questioning the label after looking around on the web. 

If it helps here is my Ligularia przewalskii, bought this year for 99p in 9cm pot
