I love geum and have several different named varieties such as Totally Tangerine, Red Wing, Scarlet Tempest, Banana Daquiri and Cosmopolitan. This is much paler, but still has pretty flowers. It's not a patch on Totally Tangerine which I have had for a few years and always flowers well into Winter, even at Christmas one year. It is easy to look after and flowers reliably

There's nothing wrong with Geum 'Mai Tai'. I bought a plant last year from Crocus and it was healthy and flowered well, with unusual pastel flowers in varying shades of salmon/apricot. I have grown a number of different varieties of geum and the standout winner for me is Geum 'Tangerine,' which flowers profusely for most of the season and lights up the garden with its brightness. 'Mai Tai' feels like a bit of a pale imitation but it may well appeal to someone who wants that particular pastel shade of flower.
