Geum ‘Cosmopolitan’


Geum

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.235.170


Also known as Avens, this offers a soft romantic look to the early summer border. Plants form a low clump of coarse green leaves, with branching stems held above bearing medium-sized rounded flowers. This selection has semi-double flowers that look like miniature roses. Creamy petals are flushed and edged in rosy-pink. Remove faded flowers regularly to encourage more buds. Plants may be pruned back hard after blooming, to rejuvenate the foliage. Clumps should be divided every 3 to 4 years in spring or fall. Semi-evergreen. Part of the COCKTAILS™ series. Bred by Brent Horvath of Intrinsic Perennial Gardens. USPPP: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
