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.
