Trollius chinensis



Clumps of finely cut, shiny dark green leaves put up 2–3-ft.-tall stems terminating in ­yellow to orange flowers typically shaped like globes or rounded cups. Deadhead to prolong bloom. Excellent cut flowers. Cannot take drought or heat; a constantly damp area near a pond or stream is an ideal planting site. If growing globeflowers in a regular garden bed, liberally amend soil with organic matter and keep well watered. Divide clumps only when they thin out in the center.
