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

Geum 'Mrs J Bradshaw' produces semi-double red flowers, in contrast with fresh green foliage, from June to September. For best results, grow Geum 'Mrs J Bradshaw' in a cooler part of the garden, in well-drained soil. Divide plants every two to three years.
