Trollius x cultorum 'Alabaster'

Alabaster Globe Flower

Categories: Herbaceous Perennial

Reminiscent of Mother-of-Pearl or King Tut’s alabaster vessels, the light creamy white color that imbues these large blooms brings a quiet elegance to the garden. Layered chiffonlike petals embellish stylish cup-shaped flowers, while below deeply chiseled, green glabrous foliage grows into an attractive, moisture-loving basal clump.

More About Trollius x cultorum 'Alabaster'

  • Prefers moist, heavy soils.
  • Developed by George Arends some sixty years ago, this exquisite cultorum hybrid can be intermingled with the chartreuse sprays of Alchemilla mollis ?Auslese?.

The plant has a clump-forming habit. It looks great in shady areas where the pale flowers really pop out in contrast to dark shadows. It also makes a nice addition for pond or stream margins. Prefers a cool climate.
