Trollius General Information

Trollius are most happy in moist, organic soil and cooler climates. Dislikes being disturbed. Rounded, bowl-shaped flowers are held above deeply filigreed foliage. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Trollius Plant Care

Prefers constantly moist, high-organic soil. Division is seldom necessary or beneficial, but can be done in spring. Will be slow to recover. Cut back after blooms have finished, feeding at this time may produce new blooms. Will self sow.

Plantable Pots

Our plants are grown in 3.5x3.5x4” plantable pots. Made from 100% biodegradable coconut husk fibers (coir), these pots have tremendous advantages over plastic pots. With better air exchange, this "breathable" pot fosters robust root growth and reduces transplant shock since you can plant the pots directly in the ground. The pot naturally becomes part of the soil on its own over time—no composting required—and since they're made from a renewable resource that requires very little energy, they're earth-friendly too!
