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.
