Buy Trollius 'Dancing Flame' globe flower: Showy, reliable and easy to grow

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moisture-retentive, fertile soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast
  • Flowering period: April to June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Voted best in show at the HTA National Plant Show’s New Plant Awards in 2014, this moisture-loving plant will put some zing into your borders in late spring and early summer when its bright orange bowl-shaped flowers, each with a pronounced boss of upright petal-like sepals, top the tall stems. If dead-headed regularly, it should continue to produce these showy flowers over several weeks, and as it is a hardy and relatively fast grower, it will only take a couple of years to form a good-sized colony. Make sure it gets lots of water, or plant it in a naturally moist spot like the edges of a pond or bog garden.

  • Garden care: Lift and divide large clumps in late autumn or early spring. In spring apply a 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plants and water in very dry weather, to prevent the soil from drying out.

Lovely large buttercup shaped flower grown on long stems above attractive foliage. Flowers appear to dance above others and the colour is beautiful in a late spring garden. Mine are still quite young so not yet in their full glory.

what are the white and purple plants in the picture?

Curious

Hello, The purple ones are a type of iris. You could use either Iris Tropic Night http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/iris-tropic-night/classid.3109/ or Iris chrysographes http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/iris-chrysographes/classid.3054/ The white one looks like a white flowered candelabra primula, which I'm afraid we do not currently sell. We do however have a rich pink form called Primula japonica 'Millers Crimson' http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/primula-japonica-millers-crimson/classid.2000017286/ or, Primula pulverulenta http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/primula-pulverulenta/classid.2000017266/ I hope this helps,

Can I plant this in my fish pond on one of the higher shelves?

Hello, While this plant like reliably moist or boggy conditions, it should not be planted where it will be continuously sitting in water.
