Avens or
Grecian Rose

Geum

Description:
Enjoy Geum as a cut flower in fresh bouquets.  The fuzzy, green leaves form an attractive mound that makes a good filler for the front or middle of the flower border. The main blooming period is late spring thru early summer, but it will continue to bloom sporadically throughout the summer if deadheaded. Their color impact is visible from quite a distance.  Geum is a fast grower that is rarely bothered by pests or diseases. Photo courtesy of Walters Gardens, Inc.
