Gloucestershire Echo - - ON THE MARKET -

Trollius, or the globe flower, will pro­vide a daz­zling dis­play of or­ange in late spring.

A hardy peren­nial, it likes its feet to be cool and moist with its head in the sun­shine – so a nice sunny spot by a pond would be just per­fect.

Lay­ers of hu­mus ma­te­rial each spring will help en­rich the soil and re­tain mois­ture.

The bowl-shaped warm or­ange flow­ers would mix beau­ti­fully with some yel­low Prim­ula ela­tior, along with geums in or­anges, reds and yel­lows for a zesty bor­der.
