Description

Add Geum 'Sangria' to your planting scheme and enjoy an early-summer cocktail of colour! Avens like these kick-start the summer season with total optimism, erupting into bloom from May to June with a zesty, vibrant red colour hit provided by a mass of flowers on multiple stems. The hot-colour accents of Geum 'Sangria'will certainly spice up your colour scheme, intensifying blues and mauves around it or stoking up a blaze when combined with yellows and oranges. What better way to welcome the warmer weather?     

As a fully hardy perennial, Geum 'Sangria' is low maintenance and will grow back each year with minimal fuss. Each year, this clump-forming plant will grow a little larger and produce more flowering stems each time. Once established, these hot red geums or avens produce such a generous number of flower-topped stems that the overall appearance is a cloud of colourful blooms which billow in the breeze. For best results, give Geum 'Sangria' (Cocktails Series) a position in a sunny or partially shaded border with soil which doesn’t completely dry out.

Useful information

    • Soak your Geum 'Sangria' roots in water for 3-6 hours prior to planting.

    • Plant your "Avens" bare roots into temporary pots with a multipurpose compost in spring and grow-on in a sheltered spot outdoors.

    • Choose a pot which comfortably fits the bare roots. Some have a noticeable crown which should be just below the soil surface with any top growth exposed.

    • Plant out into borders or permanent containers in late spring or early summer once in full growth. Choose a position in sun or shade depending on the variety.
