The Plants

Geum 'Tempest Scarlet'

£7.99

This cracking new geum wowed the judges at the RHS Cheslea Plant of the Year 2016 competition, where it picked up second place. It is a sterile hybrid, so produces lots of larger than average apricot-flushed reddish flowers over an impressively long period. It's first flush starts in mid-spring, after which the plant usually takes a short break before going on to flower uninterupted into the autumn.
