Geum rivale ‘Lemon Drops’
at Digging Dog

Geum

Grecian Rose

The Greek name for this genus, which means “to give a taste of,” only hints at the flavor of happiness it brings to our garden. The cheerful flowers are held on sturdy stems above basal clumps of fuzzy leaves. Given good drainage and ample moisture, these robust perennials thrive with minimal care.

Springing up as a chance seedling in Beth Chatto’s Essex garden, this trim perennial fashions soft yellow blooms and a fresh green dome of scalloped leaves. Citrus-hued sprays unveil single bell-like flowers with orange stamens and green and red calyxes that dangle from arching wine-tinged stems.

Ensconced in the frontlines, this low growing Geum offers thirst-quenching accents just right for cooling down a fiery flowered companion like Potentilla ‘Monarch’s Velvet’.

Blooms May-July.

Size: 9" high x 9" wide; hardy to zone 5.
