Very spring-like these mostly low growing plants can flower almost any time. Very collectable they seem to be gaining in popularity now but have a way to go to catch up to Snowdrops!
Well behaved clumps of fresh green foliage and jewel-like flowers in a range of bright colours make Geums a good way to introduce some colour to a spring border after the early coices like Hellebores and Primroses have finished. Geum are easy to grow in an average soil in at least a little bit of shade, or in better soil in sun.
Bigger than most of the cultivated hybrid Geums this species makes a modest clump of soft green, deeply lobed leaves and branching stems bearing clear yellow flowers for months through spring and summer. 60cm.
