Ligularia Dentata Desdemona

Ligularia Dentata Desdemona

Sometimes called Leopard Plant, this is a bold specimen perennial that needs a moist location.

Plants form a clump of large, rounded dark-green leaves with a purple backside. Taller stems appear in midsummer, bearing clusters of bright golden orange daisy flowers. Superb for the back of the border, or at the waterside. An unusual centerpiece for a tub or large container. Both the flowers and leaves are great for cutting. Clumps may be divided in the spring, every 3 to 4 years.

In warm Summer regions plan to grow in this in shade.
