Geum flora plena Blazing Sunset
Large bright red flowers adorn this larger Geum. Flowers are fully doubled and almost twice the size of other Geum varieties, and flower for a long period starting in late spring. Great for bouquets, this Geum will flower for longer if not allowed to go to seed so don’t be afraid to give it some light trims as flowers fade. Divide every 4 years to keep size in check. Tolerates a wide range of soils including clay, and is happiest with good winter drainage. Leave some foliage for better overwintering. Pairs well with Salvia ‘Blue Hill’ and ‘Caradonna.’ PPAF.
