Ligularia dentata 'Desdemona'

Leopard plant

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.
