Ligularia dentata ‘Desdemona’


Ligularia

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.317.600


Sometimes called Elephant Ears, 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. Slugs can be troublesome. Clumps may be divided in the spring, every 3 to 4 years. In warm summer regions plan to grow in this in shade.
