Description :

Even more vigour

Trollius x cultorum 'New Moon' was introduced into the catalogue of ornamental varieties in 2011 by the German nursery Jelitto in 2011. It was bred from seeds of the legendary Trollius 'Alabaster' (*). This marvellous, delicate selection is due to the work of Dutch nurseryman Coen Jansen.

At the end of spring, the plant offers us incomparable flowers in semi-double buds in shades ranging from green to butter-yellow, which provide a wonderful contrast with the green of the pistils and the brown of its stamens.

Trollius 'New Moon' is a more vigorous globe flower with bigger flowers, but it requires two to three years’ growth to fully express itself.

In the garden we grow it as punctuation in a partial shade bed with ferns or hostas for their foliage, Astilbe or Alchemilla for their flowers or grasses such as Millium effusum Aureum’ or Deschampsia.

Grow in a cool spot in the sun (not scorching) or light shade in good, moist, to damp, humus-rich garden soil, which is well-drained in winter. A good cut flower.

(*) Many selections of perennials are from the work of the German nurseryman Georg Arends (1863-1952): including Aconitum carmichaelii 'Arendsii', Hosta sieboldiana 'Elegans', Ligularia 'Othello', Sedum 'Herbstfreude' or Sedum 'Autumn Joy'.

Trollius x cultorum 'Alabaster' is the result of a cross between the European and Asian globeflower Trollius europaeus X Trollius chinensis. Less vigorous, in the early summer it produces attractive bouquets of little, very pale globular blooms.
