Trollius “Golden Queen” is truly the queen of the buttercup family, having strongly erect stems requiring no staking, rising up to three feet from out of its clump of three-lobed serrated foliage. Each stem is topped by the largest brightest tangerine blossoms which are excellent for bouquets and magnets for butterflies and bees. After flowering cut back heavily to encourage a second flush of flowers. These clump-forming perennials are suitable for full sun or part shade and as with all globeflowers, require moist conditions, it is appropriate to the bog garden and can be used as a marginal plant. It will easily adapt to well-drained soil but will not tolerate outright dryness.

This hybrid globe flower was created from the relatively late-blooming & tender Chinese Globeflower (T. chinensis) crossed with the taller and hardier Ledebour Globeflower (T. lebourii), getting the best traits from both species. This and other globeflower crosses are also sold under the hybrid name T. cultorum. The blooms opened flatter than other globeflowers so that the name 'globeflower' is not so applicable in this cultivar.

    Sowing; Trollius is a “cold germinator” Seeds can be left to go through the seasons naturally or germination hastened by “Stratifying” (imitating the seasons)

    Germination should start to occur after 30 days, but can be slow and irregular. It may be up to a year, don’t throw away the seed tray too soon!

    The “Natural” method; Sow seeds at 10°C (50°F), covering them with a thin layer of vermiculite or free draining compost. Keep moist but not wet at all times. Place each container in a polythene bag to conserve moisture. Check for germination regularly and transplant any seedlings as soon as they are large enough to handle.

    In autumn, place the containers outside in a cold frame or plunge them up to the rims in a shady part of the garden border and cover with glass or clear plastic. Some of the seeds may germinate during the spring and summer and these should be transplanted when large enough to handle. The remainder of the seeds may lay dormant until next spring.

    Hastening Germination by Stratification; Soak and sow seeds as above and leave for four weeks. Transplant any seedlings that have germinated. After 6 weeks chill the remaining seeds: put the tray into the refrigerator at 4°C (39°F), or somewhere with a similar temperature for 6 to 8 weeks. Then remove to around 10°C (50°F)

    Transplanting; Prick out each seedling as it becomes large enough to handle, transplant into 7.5cm (3in) pots or trays. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 10 to 15 days before planting out, space 30cm (12in) apart.

    Cultivation; Cut down flowers as they are over to encourage After flowering cut back heavily for a second flush of flowers and to encourage basal growth.

    Trollius thrive in neutral to alkaline soils that are moist, fertile and humus-rich. Partial shade is ideal but can tolerate full sun. Provide shelter from strong, cold winds and mulch annually in autumn.
