Geums are familiar favourites in herbaceous borders, although they also work well in larger rock gardens, developing into neat dense clumps of restrained foliage. They need a little space for their flowers, which tend to be produced on long, spreading stems. 

Geum 'Mai Tai' has branching, red-green stems on which pink-flushed, apricot flowers appear from late spring to summer. It makes an excellent cut flower. For best results, grow 'Mai Tai' in a cooler part of the garden, in well-drained soil. Divide geums every two to three years.
