Geums are valuable for bringing bright colours to the spring border before the main flowering season gets under way. Varieties of the wild water avens have much more subtle shapes and colouring than the better known border varieties, such as 'Lady Stratheden.' With its nodding clusters of yellow flowers on rather upright stems, this variety has a passing similarity to aquilegias, but without the spurs. Team the two together with the spotted or silvery foliage of pulmonaria or lamium for a natural display in a border or wild corner. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it the Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
