Geum 'Georgenberg'

Geum 'Georgenberg' Judging from the phenomenal way in which Gladiolus 'Boone' was received by the gardening public, and knowing that the color Apricot is so very unusual in the plant world, I've high hopes that Geum 'Georgenberg' will be embraced to the same degree. Out of all the Geum selections that I currently grow, have grown in the past, or have seen in other gardens, I have to say that on so many rating criteria, this one is the best!!! Besides the Apricot color, the way the flowers are presented is very important to me. In all of the other Geums that I've grown or seen, the flowers are held on gangly stems high above the plant. On Geum 'Georgenberg' the flowers are on very rigid stems, held much closer to the plant.

Commonly known as "Avens", the genus Geum is in the Rosaceae (Rose) family. I grow them in full sun and full shade. They seem to prefer the sun and this particular cultivar is very generous in producing an abundance of offspring in its tight, compact, round clump. Plant height is 3" to 6" and in a couple of years, they'll form an almost perfectly round 12" plant with dozens of divisions that you can share with your friends.

And....... they're tough as nails! Left outside in pots, they've never blinked an eye at single digit temperatures with no snow cover. Not only that, but the deer, rabbits and other varmints have never touched them.

I've a good bit of Geum 'Georgenburg' to share with you now. What you'll receive are bareroot, flowering size 3 year old plants out of 2" pots, with their roots wrapped in long fibered, unmilled sphagnum moss. This material is antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral and a very useful material to recycle. If you'd rather have them arrive in their pots, please add $.95 per plant to cover the extra cost of shipping.

The prices shown below include FREE SHIPPING on bareroot plants out of their 2" pots. If you would like to receive the plants undisturbed, in their pots, please add .95¢ per plant to cover the extra cost of shipping soil and pots.
