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.
Boasting a stellar reputation at the Chelsea Flower Show and 5 stars from the Chicago Botanical Garden’s Geum trials, ‘Totally Tangerine’ is reputed to produce more flowers over a longer duration than any other Geum! A masterly 1999 cross by British nursery owner, Timothy Crowther between Geum chiloense ‘Mrs. Bradshaw’ and Geum rivale, this exuberant Geum debuts a flower-laden frenzy with copious large, up and outward-facing peachy-orange blooms. The sterile, vividly colored semidouble blossoms lure bees, butterflies and florists above tall branched stems and a robust 14 in. semievergreen mounding rosette of close-knit, pinnate deep green leaves.
