Ligularia dentata 'Desdemona'

Common Name: Ligularia, Bigleaf Goldenray

One of the most popular cultivars of Ligularia! The most striking feature of 'Desdemona' is the foliage. In spring, the new leaves emerge beet-red, fade to greenish-bronze on top, and remain purple on the undersides. The stems are even purple too! In late summer, golden yellow, daisy-like flowers are produced just above the compact mound of foliage.
