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.

Distinguished by overlapping, incurved petals bathed in cool lemon-yellows, beautiful globes gracefully alight foot long olive-green stems. A polished foliar mass grounds the bounteous one to two in. blooms. Maintaining a fresh look even when exposed to drier conditions, the large richly green leaves are rounded and divided into 5 parts with each lobed leaflet emargined by prominent teeth.

Blooms June–July.

Size: 2' 0" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Customer Comment:

“Surfing the web for a special plant, I chanced on Digging Dog Nursery. I thought that any nursery that could create an Egyptian Gothic out of Anubis must have some pretty cool things going for it. I was right, and my first order was a pleasure. Well packed, healthy plants and extremely appealing people on the other side of the screen.”
