Geum 'Scarlet Tempest' is an avens that produces a multitude of double flowers or red-orange with yellow centres.
Geum 'Scarlet Tempest' offers a multitude of large, double, red flowers with an orange flush on slender stems above and around lush, semi-evergreen foliage. Prized for the front of the herbaceous border, and in mixed beds and rock gardens, this compact and mounding sterile hybrid is an invaluable re-bloomer producing flushes in mid-spring and again in midsummer to fall with slightly smaller flowers. Easy and carefree. Pollinator attractor. Deer resistant.
