Note: A lovely, dwarf globeflower with crisp, dark green, attractively-cut foliage and flowers so intensely yellow they could be called gold. This charming species is easy to grow from seed. As with my other Trollius species, I have placed this diminutive species in my artificial bog garden where it seems to be very happy. It stands about 12 to 14 inches tall when its flowering stems are fully elongated, (Sent: Alpinefirstname.lastname@example.org)
