Globeflower is the plant of the year 2022

As the third category for the award [insert species] of the year, the Latvian Botanist Society has chosen the globeflower (Trollius europaeus).

The flower has been given many amusing names in various languages, including the troll flower in German and butter balls in Swedish. In northern folklore the globeflower has been mentioned as a troll favorite, hence its name.

The globeflower is round and yellow, and in popular beliefs, it has been attributed magical qualities, including the ability to ward off evil spirits.

The globeflower is slightly poisonous and blooms in May and June.

LSM has already reported on the bird of the year and the animal of the year.
