Trollius cultorum

Trollius cultorum


The European globe flower. An exquisite native plant, evocative of unspoilt meadows. Emerging from a crown of divided buttercup-like leaves, the flowering stems support numerous lemon-yellow flowers like giant buttercups. Slow to establish, but builds to form a good clump.

Product Description

Looking like a giant buttercup growing up to 3ft tall, this un-named trollius is a related genus with generally larger and more handsome flowers. In this variety, the flowers are true buttercup yellow. The plant needs moist conditions and is happiest in wet to boggy soil at pond margins, where it makes a later-blooming alternative to marsh marigolds, or in damp borders for early summer interest. It looks good with hostas, especially gold-variegated forms.
