Geum rivale | Rusty Young
We are addicted to these little plants. Rusty Young planted en masse looks simply stunning from its crinkly rosette of leaves through to the stems of striking rusty coloured flowers opening from red-tinged buds that wave beautifully in a breeze.
Perfect in a pot, the garden or edging a garden path, this is truly a magic plant to have in your garden. The flowers cut beautifully and last well in a vase and even after the flowers have dropped the stunning pompom seed-heads look fabulous too. The more you cut, the more you will be rewarded with more flowers - what more could you ask for!
Whilst traditionally a plant found in moist areas, this little plant is more than happy in full sun or partial shade but a covering of mulch will help to give it some moisture although ours seem to cope in even the driest of summer conditions. Flowering is spring through summer but if it loves its situation it can flower sporadically throughout the year.
