Geum: Totally Tangerine and Mrs. Bradshaw Varieties for Your Garden!


These pretty orange and red flowers are blooming right now in our patio bed! I planted them three years ago and, because they are perennials, they just come back every year on their own without any work on my part! Those are the kinds of plants we love, right? This flowering perennial is called Geum (pronounced like JEE-um) and the two varieties shown here are Totally Tangerine (orange) and Mrs. Bradshaw (red). You can learn all about these flowers - including what zones they are in - by clicking on my blog post link below. Happy planting!
