Commonly known as the Giant Marsh Marigold, Caltha palustris subsp. polypetala is one of the larger species of Caltha. From April to June its golden flowers herald the Spring with a vibrant splash of bright yellow. Whilst in flower, this hardy marginal aquatic will form a large mound of glossy green foliage that gradually dies back after the flowers fade. This superb spring perennial will certainly make a big impact when planted at the edge of ponds. Height: 90cm (36"). Spread: 90cm (36"). Planting depth: Zones 2 & 3 to 20cm below water level.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Grow Caltha plants in fertile, boggy soil at the edge of ponds and streams or submerged in water to a maximum depth of 20cm (8"). Marsh Marigolds thrive in sun or semi-shade.
More Info
After flowering, the foliage of Marsh Marigolds tends to die back. Remove the old leaves to maintain a tidy appearance and encourage a second flush of flowers. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of Caltha in spring.
