Geum chiloense ‘Red Dragon’


USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.235.340

Also known as Avens, this midsized selection provides a long display in a bright and flashy hot colour. It forms a low mound of coarse green leaves, taller branching stems holding frilly double scarlet-red to orange blooms. Flowers well even in the first year. Deadhead regularly to encourage more buds to form. Terrific in containers. Attractive to butterflies. Clumps should be divided every 3 to 4 years in spring or fall. Tidy plants up in late fall or early spring, if needed, removing any dead leaves but allowing green ones to remain.
