Geum ‘Prinses Juliana’
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.

Geum ‘Prinses Juliana’ full sun

Once you witness the floriferous deluge that spans nearly 3 months, it’s easy to see why this garden-worthy 1923 Dutch introduction is still celebrated as one of the best semidouble Geums available. Poised atop tall strong stems plus comely mounds of rounded rich green foliage, the abundantly petaled warm orange blooms emphasize their G. chiloense heritage by appearing earlier than most in the genus. Sunny rock work, cottage gardens or mixed plantings make an ideal domain for ‘Prinses Juliana’s fiery colors and undemanding temperament.

Blooms April-June

Size: 18"–2' 0" high x 18"–2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

As Summer draws to a close....

September is a transitory month in the garden. As summer’s end approaches, the shadows are growing longer and the days are becoming shorter. This time of year may find some landscapes a tad lackluster. When designing your garden, you may wish to include plants that remain perky thoughout the season or experience their heyday now. The plants featured in this newsletter provide a lot of late season oomph and promise to beckon you down the pathways of your garden.

Our next guided Saturday Stroll is September 16th., followed by October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
