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.
Trollius x cultorum ‘Lemon Queen’ (P-0487)
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 hybrids urbane silken flowers alight tall sleek stalks, flaunting showy stamens and a composed beauty. "Lemon Queen" demands cool moist soil and easily rules a woodlands edge with confidants such as Astilbe "Perkeo" and low growing Anemones.
Size: 2-1/4' high x 18" wide.
