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.
Warm orange, slightly ragged semi-double flowers in early summer on this slightly taller variety, cut back for a second flush. Not very vigorous but doesn't disappear! Good soil in sun or light shade, 40cm.
