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 ‘Mango Lassi’ full sun

‘Mango Lassi’ blooms a luscious medley of fruit-laden colors: soft orange, mango and peach infused with rich golden hues and coral tinges. Bedazzling her soft, small-toothed leaves, the layered and overlapping delicate petals shape sumptuous double flowers, while frilly-looking, dark nectarine centers and reddish purple buds heighten the allure. Introduced by Blooming Nursery, this neatly grounded ‘lassi’ will bring warm, glowing accents to Stachys ‘Silky Fleece’.

Blooms May–July.

Size: 12" high x 12" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Zak's pick is Origanum 'Bristol Cross' (P-1277)

The Greeks called this ancient herb oros ganos, meaning “joy of the mountain,” and legend has it that Aphrodite created the sweet, spicy scent of its leaves as a symbol of happiness. A sun-loving genus hailing from the Mediterranean, Origanums display small, tubular, whorled flowers often arranged in showy overlapping bracts, and prefer well drained soil.

"It's one of my favorite low-growing Origanums. It's perfect for edging a pathway and the profuse spires of lavender pink never fail to draw my eyes, …..and the bees!" -Zak
