Globe shaped pale yellow flowers like giant buttercups with a pleasant aroma. Valuable for color in spring gardens as well as excellent for cutting. These plants have a strongly erect stems requiring no staking, rising up to 24″ from out of three-lobed serrated basal foliage, each stem topped by the largest pale-yellow blossoms which are magnets for butterflies & bees. Moisture loving, late spring or early summer flowering. Fresh looking.
As with all globeflowers, it requires very moist conditions and is appropriate to the bog garden. It thrives in poorly draining clay soils, but will easily adapt to well-drained soil too. Bred from wildflowers that preferred marshy meadows, it will not tolerate outright dryness. It is clump forming, long-lived and one of the earliest to bloom in the spring. A sterling addition to bouquets and flower arrangements.
