Amazing Australian breeding from legendary plantsman, Dennis Norgate. This goer of a Geum flowers freely from early spring right through to Christmas, and beyond.
The gorgeous, golden yellow blooms have orange-red kisses and a gentle wave to the petals. The flowers are followed by decorative, silky seed heads.
Geums are easily woven through beds and borders, used as edging plants or beneath deciduous trees. Tough, hardy and easy care!
Geums are highly valued, low growing ground covers or fillers with plenty of flowers. They establish quickly and need little in the way of care. The colourful flowers will adorn your beds with plenty left over to fill your vases.
Geums are relatively shade tolerant herbaceous perennials and grow best in morning sun, the harsh afternoon rays can sometimes scorch them, depending on moisture levels.
Plant Geums in well drained, humus rich soil. Water well to establish, plants take around four weeks to establish and should be watered every other day during this time. Once established they are dry tolerant. Remove spent flower heads to encourage more blooms during the growing season.
