Buy Trollius × cultorum 'Alabaster' Globeflower: Pretty pale primrose-yellow flowers

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
  • Flowering period: April to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Pale primrose-yellow, buttercup-like flowers are borne in mid- to late spring above deeply divided mid-green leaves. Less vigorous than most cultivars, it will thrive in full sun or partial shade if the roots do not dry out. Perfect for a moist border or the margins of a pond or stream.

  • 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.

Eventual height & spread

I have planted Trollius Lemon Queen and Cheddar recently, now they appear to be turning brown and rotting at the base of stems, and flowering stems are collapsing sideways. Can this be slug damage? Other moisture loving plants in same area are fine, so don't think it is too dry for them. .

Hello, I am not really sure what may be causing this from your description, although I think it could well be slug or snail damage. Alternatively, if the stems have already produced their flowers, it may just be natural dieback.
