Love these! First saw them at Chelsea Flower Show where they seem to be used a lot. Ordered 3 small very healthy plants from Crocus in autumn, potted them on and kept them in an unheated greenhouse over winter before planting them outside this spring. Despite most plants being held back by the Beast from the East this year these Geums have been in full bloom since the firs week in April. They are planted with Allium 'Purple Sensation' and Salvia nemorosa 'Caradonna', which makes quite a nice combination.

I planted this as per instructions when it arrived last summer but it never flowered, just grew more leaves. It is now (following spring) putting out lots of leaves having survived the winter, so hopefully it will flower this year.

Love the bright cheerful colour

Great perennial for the mixed border, really brightens up the border. I have planted it with Salvia Caradonna which flowers at the same time, the Orange of the Geum make a great contrast to the dark blue of the Salvia.

I've bought Geum "totally tangerine" to grow through purple foliage like Cotinus " "Royal Purple" and also to dot between purple salvia and Desdemona roses. I planted them initially in a nursery bed to allow them to grow larger before putting them in final position.

Hello there If you pinch out the spent flowerheads the plant might produce new buds on these stems. Hope this helps.

Are they attractive to slugs and snails

maneek

Hello, Generally slugs and snails are not particularly tempted by these, but that is not to say they wont have the occasional nibble.
