Gracing gardens since the 16th century, these marvelous blooms inspired their name, which translates to “basin” in Latin or “globe” in German. Globeflowers are undemanding perennials that look best in drifts and are the perfect choice for the water’s edge, a boggy spot or the border, granted a moisture-retentive, organic-rich soil and shelter from hot sun. A sterling addition to bouquets, the Buttercup-like blossoms surmount straight stems above handsome, deeply divided glossy leaves and promise a long summer fling with regular deadheading.
Bearing a crown of 12 or more narrow vertical petals surrounded by an outer ring of cupped soft orange sepals, this Trollius is known as the “Queen of the Buttercups.” Lustrous dark green leaves—serrated, toothed and finely cut—meld a vigorous basal clump that launches the sturdy, 3 ft. tall flowering stems in no need of staking.
Size: 2-1/2' – 3' 0" high x 18" wide.
