Globeflowers are extremely popular perennials, bursting into color in late spring and early summer. This selection has semi-double golden yellow flowers with a contrasting centre of deep orange. Sometimes called Buttercups, these grow well in a sunny or part-shaded border, also at the edge of a moist woodland. Flowers will last a few days when cut. Shear plants back after blooming to encourage a flush of new leaves to last through the summer. Clumps may be easily divided in fall or early spring. Combines well with early Shasta Daisies.
