Impressive Floral Display
Ruffled butter-yellow blossoms embellished with pastel pinks and peaches cover the compact branching habit. Long-blooming, cheerful flowers dance on straight darker stems above the foliage. From the Pretticoats™ Series, Geum Peach touts longer blooming, a compact habit and outfacing flowers for better viewing. Lush green foliage mounds offer a pleasing backdrop to the prolific blooms. Foliage tends to be evergreen in southern climates. Attractive wispy silvery seed heads will form if some spent flowers are left.

Geum General Information

Geum prefer rich, well-drained soil. Some moisture required. Morning sun with afternoon shade is preferred in hot summer climates. Good winter drainage is necessary for survival. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Geum Plant Care

Can be divided every 2 years or so in early spring or early fall. Cut back spent foliage in summer after flowering for flush of new growth. Deadheading encourages greater flower production.

Plantable Pots

Our plants are grown in 3.5x3.5x4” plantable pots. Made from 100% biodegradable coconut husk fibers (coir), these pots have tremendous advantages over plastic pots. With better air exchange, this "breathable" pot fosters robust root growth and reduces transplant shock since you can plant the pots directly in the ground. The pot naturally becomes part of the soil on its own over time—no composting required—and since they're made from a renewable resource that requires very little energy, they're earth-friendly too!

100% Guarantee

We offer a 100% unconditional guarantee for all our perennials to reach you in good condition and to grow. If you're not satisfied, we'll reship or refund immediately. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns—we share your passion for gardening and want your new plants to thrive in your border!
