Ligularia dentata 'Desdemona'
Desdemona is a fabulous Ligularia, bigger than 'Midnight Lady’ with larger flowers in a vibrant orange yellow.
For best results, plant in fertile, moist soil in dappled shade avoiding any mid-day sun.
All Ligularia can wilt when overheated, even if they have plenty of moisture. It's a survival mechanism from which they will recover.
If you can meet their demands, these plants will add a touch of the tropics to temperate borders.
The sultry, glossy foliage and vibrant, shimmering flowers make a stunning counterpoint to more delicate shade lovers.
