T. europaeus 'Superbus'A compact and tidier form of T. europaeus, with slightly larger lemon colored globes. Superbus also exhibits the pleasing black shading of the upper portions of the flowering stems seen in Empire Day. In fact, it is even more pronounced in this variety. Rarely blooming taller than 18”, with flowers hovering just above the bulk of the foliage.

CheddarCreamy white flowers with a light fragrance. Very much like Alabaster in color and size (18-20" foliage, flower stalks 28-32"), both beginning to bloom as the first Trollius are finishing (Late May-Early June). Minor and possibly imagined differences are that Alabaster opens a few days earlier and that Cheddar shows a little more green in the outer sepals. Some have said that Cheddar is the more aggressive grower of the two, but I remain unconvinced of that.

Tro0llius Orange PrincessI have to admit I have seen at least three different plants being offered under this name. The one we grow has pale orange globes on elongated 36" flowering stems; the blooms seem to float high above the bulk of the 24" main body of foliage. Ideal for the wet wildflower meadow!

Prichard’s Giant The tallest, darkest orange, and longest blooming of the early flowering hybrids. Beginning shortly after 'Commander-in-Chief', its healthy production of secondary buds on the 36-40" floral shoots keeps the color coming through to the start of the creamy white varieties of Trollius. Large 3" wide globes; the lower petals (actually sepals) are very attractively fringed.

Orange Crest

Most noticeable is the two-tone nature of the flower color, with each orange-gold globe open at its "north pole" revealing even darker orange petals inside. Even before blooming this variety attracts attention, when flames of red overlay the gilded buds. Dark scarlet shades the emerging leaves. A sturdy 30-36" plant, with minimal elongation of the flowering stems above the foliage mass. This is a wonderful Trollius, possessing so many of the desired attributes we look for during trialing.
