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

Geum ‘Blazing Sunset’ has fully double, scarlet blooms held on tall stems, above fresh green foliage. Plants are compact yet vigorous. It’s perfect for growing in sunny or partially shaded borders, and makes an excellent cut flower.
