Tempo™ Rose: Blushed rose-pink flowers on dark branching stems entertain with an upbeat performance from April into early summer. Butterflies are adoring fans and join the act for a colorful show. The upward-facing semi-double flowers resemble small roses. Geum Tempo™ Rose produces attractive deeply-lobed, strawberry-like foliage that tends to be evergreen in southern climates. Attractive wispy silvery seed heads will form if some spent flowers are left. Geum is easy to grow and deer resistant too.

Description

Geum  JEE-um

Geum is a long blooming member of the rose family which will reward you with flowers in shades of yellow, orange, red or pink. The bloom shapes range from fluffy upward facing doubles to nodding singles. These showy flowers also attract bees and butterflies. For the longest lasting cut flowers, pick when blooms are half open. The foliage ranges from deciduous to evergreen depending on species and conditions. Leaves are deeply lobed with toothed or scalloped edges, forming a dense mound. An excellent addition to rock gardens, containers or as a border. Geum combines well with Geranium, Salvia nemerosa, ornamental grasses and Achillea (yarrow).
