High-class dandelions. Imagine the glorious bright yellow of dandelions in late spring, but with plants that were never weeds. Cremanthodiums usually have yellow flowers, sometimes pink, but nodding - a mechanism that sheds the rain in the monsoon-affected mountains where they grow. Many of them are tricky to please, probably because our growing season is too long, but there have been some outstanding successes, particularly at the Tromso Botanic Garden, and there are a few species that are easy in the UK.
