Globeflower is a spring-blooming Colorado native commonly associated with Marsh Marigold (Caltha leptosepala). Its blossoms first appear while still nestled among the leafy foliage. As the season progresses, the stems push upwards to heights of 8-18". Flower color ranges from nearly pure white to ivory.
