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 waters’ 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.
Large creamy-yellow double blooms revel atop strong, straight leafy stems and deep-hewn toothed greenery that sports a shiny finish. This new, vastly improved cultivar arose from seed that Dutch nurseryman Coen Jansen sent to Jelitto Perennial Seeds in 2011 following his work with Trollius ‘Alabaster’, an old introduction from George Arends’ famed nursery. A friend to bees and floral designers, but not bunnies, ‘New Moon’s vigorous habit and posh Paeony-style flowers can be surrounded by Iris chrysographes ‘Black Form’ and Athyrium ‘Ghost’.
