If before the flower, the bathing-place was a fairly common plant in many regions, but now it almost never occurs in the wild. But many gardeners grow this plant in their own areas. The scientific name, which has a flower is a bathing-place - "trollius" (Trollius). Many people believe that it is one of the most beloved troll flowers.
The flower of a bathing - place is a moisture-loving plant and therefore it can be found near water reservoirs. The most widely cultivated two types of bathing suits - European and Asian.

Description of a flower of a bathing-gown of Asian
This plant has a more compact shrub that is almost the same size as the European bathing suit and reaches a height of up to 80 centimeters. Flowering begins at the end of May and is quite short, about 20 days. The flowers are very beautiful and have a bright orange color, from a distance they look like small lights. The diameter of the flowers can vary from 5 to 6 centimeters.
Many hybrids were also created on the basis of these species. They are distinguished by a wide variety of colors. The most common is "Alabaster" - it has pale cream flowers, "Canary Bird" has pale yellow flowers, "Orange Princess" and "Goldquelle" are also very beautiful.
The flower of the bathing-house, despite the diversity of species, has approximately the same height. However, there are several species that are giant in size. For example, the highest bathing bath can grow to 1.5 meters, and the Chinese bathing giraffe grows about a meter in height. The species that are common in the mountains have dwarf sizes, so the Djungarian and the dwarf bathing bath reach a height of only 15 centimeters, but, nevertheless, they are also very beautiful.
The bathing perennial plant and without a transplant can grow in one place for more than ten years. If you create good conditions for a plant, then the bush can grow very quickly, then you will have to divide it and plant new plants. If this is not done in time degeneration of the bathing-place begins.
If in nature the bathing-place prefers shady places, then in its gardens many grow on sunny areas. In such conditions, the plant also feels good, just fades faster and requires enhanced irrigation. Soil for growing a bathing-house should contain a lot of humus and be with neutral acidity.
This is a fairly unpretentious plant and therefore when growing it usually does not cause problems. However, like any plant, it has its weaknesses. The bathing room does not tolerate stagnation of water, when planting it should take care of the organization of good drainage. When the plant blooms and develops, it requires intensified irrigation, whose intensity is closer to the autumn decreases. Do not dig the ground under the bush. Thus, you will damage the roots that are located close to the surface and bring the plant more harm than good. To keep moisture in the soil, it must be mulched. To do this, use humus well or use a mixture of peat and sand, taken in equal proportions.
The bathing-house replicates with seeds, as well as by dividing the bush. But experts do not recommend sharing a shrub less than 5 years old.
The bathing room is practically not sick. You can carry out additional fertilizing, for example, sprinkle the bush with epine. To prevent the occurrence of various fungal diseases, it is necessary to permanently remove dead leaves. The plant has good frost resistance, so it easily tolerates our winters.
