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.
Surviving the test of time, this cherished compact Trollius was first trialed at Britain’s Wisley Gardens around 1929. Poised on sturdy stems, large, dazzling yellowish orange blooms are bedecked with ornate central clusters of darker tangerine petals. ‘Orange Crest’s ebullient buttercup-like display and tasteful, deeply divided glabrous leaves crave morning sun and cool moist soil.
