Trollius - Globe
Globe Flower is a glorified Buttercup; its leaves and
flowers resemble the Buttercup in form but are larger.
Improved varieties have orange, gold, orange-red and
lemon-colored flowers, often double. The commonest species
is Trollius europwus, but while all the catalogued species
resemble each other in form, the seasons and the colors
of the flowers differ. They grow about l feet tall and
bloom throughout the Summer, starting in late May.
The Globe Flower flourishes, both in sun and shade,
and is especially at home in borders in which the soil
is a trifle too damp for other plants. They are showy
border plants, their neat habit and compact flowers
commend them to all. We must add that they grow nicely
in the ordinary garden soil, even though it be away
from the waterside.
Although usually propagated from seeds, the plants are
tardy in coming into bloom. Old plants may also be divided.
