A popular variety, with a long flowering season and semi-double, vivid scarlet flowers that appear from June to August among rosettes of puckered, scalloped fresh green leaves. This easy-to-grow geum looks best among other 'hot' coloured flowers towards the front of a sunny border.
- Garden care: To prolong flowering, deadhead regularly. Lift and divide large clumps in early spring or late autumn.
“Frilly bright-red flowers in abundance in midsummer - divide and conquer regularly to keep this scarlet woman happy”
