Trollius x cultorum ‘Lemon Queen’
at Digging Dog

Trollius

Globeflower

Gracing gardens since the 16th century, these marvelous yellow-hued blooms inspired their name, which translates to “basin” in Latin or “globe” in German. Globeflowers are undemanding perennials that look best en masse and are the perfect choice for the waters’ edge, a boggy spot, or the border, given a moisture retentive, organic-rich soil and shelter from hot sun.

A sterling addition to bouquets, the Buttercup-like blossoms perch on straight stems above handsome, deeply divided glossy leaves and promise a long summer fling with regular deadheading.

Trollius x cultorum ‘Lemon Queen’ full sun  partial shade

Steeped in old-world allure, the gleaming flush of lusty deep green lobed foliage coronates large double lemon yellow globes. A 1920s selection that shares lineage with Trollius europaeus, Trollius asiaticus and Trollius chinensis, this hybrid's splendid chiffon-like flowers alight tall sleek stalks, flaunting showy stamens and a composed beauty. 'Lemon Queen' demands cool moist soil and easily rules a woodland's edge with confidants such as Astilbe 'Perkeo' and low growing Anemones.

Size: 2-1/4' high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Customer Comment:

“In a busy business, you may get lulled into thinking it's all about orders, supplies, shipping, etc.  But it's not just about that.  It's also about the happiness your flowers brought to a little girl who has endured a great deal in her young life, and the happiness that plants bring to us all, young and old.”

~Tim in New Hampshire
