Plant details

This is a really striking plant. It is classified as a perennial, but from an early sowing, it acts like an annual. 'Blazing Sunset' flowers early, producing prolific, fully double, scarlet flowers over a long period. The flowers are huge for a geum. Grow it in the flower border and cottage garden, or for a dazzling cut flower. This plant does best in full sun and prefers moist, well-drained soil.
