Trollius (Bareroot Globeflower)
Trollius (Bareroot Globeflower) chinensis ‘Golden Queen, RHS Award
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 in mass plantings. A fantastic perennial with decorative, globe-shaped flowers during the summer above the handsome foliage. Gleaming dark green leaves that are serrated, toothed and finely cut meld into a vigorous basal clump that launches the sturdy 3 ft. tall flowering stems with no need of staking. Globeflowers are indispensable for a border with a normal water table as well as bog gardens and waterside. We advise cutting the flower stems back after flowering to induce a second flush of blooms later in the season. Generally, trouble-free perennial for many years of garden joy. Needs no protection during the winter. Only in very cold winters, we advise covering the plants with a mulch (in the coldest zones only).
Planting Instructions: Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2 inches below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly. Can also be grown in moist spots in the garden, like pond (water) sides and bog gardens.
Pests or Diseases: No serious insect or disease problems.
