This very rare Caltha is seldom available. It produces masses of pompom-like double yellow flowers in spring/early summer and mounds of shiny green heart-shaped leaves. It should not be confused with the common double marsh marigold, Caltha palustris 'Flore Pleno': Caltha palustris var. palustris 'Plena' has larger, more fluffy blooms, which are a slightly paler lemon yellow. It also flowers several weeks later than the common marsh marigolds: it is still blooming well into June. Therefore, when combined with another marigold such as Caltha palustris 'Flore Pleno', it is particularly useful for extending the flowering period of your pond. 

We recommend starting your Caltha palustris var. palustris 'Plena' off in a pot of 1 litre capacity. Read more on how to pot and care for your plant here.
