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.

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.

Our fall arrangement includes: Asters Hydrangeas Miscanthus Molinias Persicarias Salvias Verbenas

I wanted this arrangement to celebrate the diverse beauty that autumn affords. It was photographed by acclaimed garden photographer, Saxon Holt, who happened to be visiting us.

Autumnal Fanfare: Lambent Leaves, Glistening Berries, Fleeting Flowers, last chance for Fantastic Fall Sale, Gift Certificates now on sale!

Here at Digging Dog, we’ve had some welcome rain to actually soak the soil. With the onset of shorter days and chilly nights, a quieter contemplative mood envelopes parts of the garden. As many herbaceous plants are fading into dormancy, evergreen shrubs, bold-toned leaves, textural seed-heads plus plump glistening berries take center stage. The impressive group of plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye when I strolled through the nursery and garden yesterday. I hope you enjoy these compelling autumnal offerings. In many locales throughout the country, there’s still time to tuck some botanical gems into an empty garden nook.
