'Desdemona' is 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 also purple. In late summer, golden yellow, daisy-like flowers are produced just above the compact mound of foliage.
