The yellow flowers of the trollius are perfect for gardens with damp space to fill. These plants can be placed in clay, moist, boggy soil and will thrive even at pond margins as long as the soil does not dry out. They do need either full sun or part shade. Soil should not become waterlogged during winter.

 

Add compost when planting out and then keep well watered during first growing season. Mulch with bark chips but do not cover the crown. Autumn is the best time to divide trollius but clumps do not generally need this. Plants may disappear during the winter but will re-emerge in the spring. Works well when planted with other moisture-loving plants such as siberian irises.
