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.
Pale yellow, tissue-like petals fashion a chic, nearly double, shallow open cup. Casting a soft feminine mood, the sumptuous blooms pose above an attractive mound of shiny foliage carved into small sections. A Dutch introduction, ‘Cheddar’ deserves to find its way into more gardens, where it will flourish in damp open sites matched with companions such as Sanguisorba ‘Chocolate Tip’ or Geranium ‘Dark Reiter’.
