Geum keenongreen, I grow them on in pots for a couple of reasons
i like to grow them on so when I plant them out they can make an immediate impact. Nothing worse than seeing tiddly specimens in the border
gauras are best delayed planting out because they flower later .....I have them in the ground..overwintered well outside.....and small plants from cuttings last year. These are now already in 1 litre pots and will go out from bigger pots in a few weeks.
So they come on better in pots and they are also waiting whilst I find the right spot in relationship to other summer plants
if you like gauras check out Corries Gold.....green and gold leaves and white flowers. A beauty.
