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 attractive basal clumps of fuzzy leaves. Given good drainage and ample moisture, these robust perennials thrive with minimal care.
The sizzling scarlet-red display of ruffled, fully double roselike flowers perched upon 2 ft. tall well-branched stems will blaze this award-winning perennial into your heart. Peerless among Geum, ‘Blazing Sunset’s blooms claim to be the largest, nearly 2 ½ in. wide, the earliest to open and the last to call it quits. Anchoring the spunky floral pomp, winsome broad hairy leaves compose an undemanding compact semievergreen mound that stays low, maintains a lush green presence and can be situated right up front.
Size: 18" – 2' 0" high x 18" wide.
Hardy to zone 5.
