Ligularia dentata ‘Desdemona’


Ligularia ‘Desdemona’ is more demure and subtle than the darker cultivars with large mounds of green leaves with purple undersides.

Don’t forget about Ligularia ‘Desdemona’ when you go mad for her more burgundy-leaved co-cultivars. This more demure and subtle lady has large mounds of green leaves with rich purple undersides. As expected with species dentata she also sports bright clusters of yellow-orange daisy-like flowers in summer. Photo courtesy of Walters Gardens.
