I grew this trollius very successfully in Anchorage Alaska. It didn't care about moisture, soil ph, sun or shade. The flower heads must be cut before the seeds mature or you will have more trollius than anyone would want. I found when I planted the late blooming trollius it tended to bully out the early blooming variety.

Now I am in Philadelphia and will need to see how it does here. It looks gorgeous with spirea, bright yarrows, astilbe, ninebark and ligularia.

One of my all time favorites! And, when you get too many you can pot them up and share them with friends. I've dug them and thrown them into pots in the fall--without any soil--and found that when the snow melted in the spring they were ready to go. Amazing.
