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.

Reminiscent of Mother-of-Pearl or King Tut’s alabaster vessels, the light creamy white color that imbues these large blooms brings a quiet elegance to the garden. Layered chiffonlike petals embellish stylish cup-shaped flowers, while below deeply chiseled, green glabrous foliage grows into an attractive, moisture-loving basal clump.

Developed by George Arends some sixty years ago, this exquisite cultorum hybrid can be intermingled with the chartreuse sprays of Alchemilla mollis ‘Auslese’.

Blooms early June – mid-July.

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

As Summer draws to a close....

September is a transitory month in the garden. As summer’s end approaches, the shadows are growing longer and the days are becoming shorter. This time of year may find some landscapes a tad lackluster. When designing your garden, you may wish to include plants that remain perky thoughout the season or experience their heyday now. The plants featured in this newsletter provide a lot of late season oomph and promise to beckon you down the pathways of your garden.

Our next guided Saturday Stroll is September 16th., followed by October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
