Sizzling Color
Breathe fiery color into any sunny to part shady border. Ruffled scarlet-red to orange double blossoms on airy branching stems sway with a summer breeze above a low rosette of toothed foliage. An elegant addition to fresh bouquets. Geum Red Dragon produces attractive foliage that tends to be evergreen in southern climates. Attractive wispy silvery seed heads will form if some spent flowers are left. Butterflies love Geum, easy to grow and deer resistant too. The red dragon is often popular at weddings and other celebrations to symbolize power, strength, happiness and good fortune. We wish the same for your garden.

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!
