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 ‘Scarlet Tempest’ is a new variety introduced in 2016. A sterile hybrid, it bears large, double, scarlet flowers with an apricot flush, from mid spring. It then flowers again, with slightly smaller flowers, from midsummer to autumn.
