Limpet's Garden


Genus: Geum.

Species: Geum rivale.

H 45cm Perennial
Flowers May-Oct intermittently
Full sun or light shade
This variety has particularly beautiful flowers.

PROPAGATION: Divide clump every few years in autumn or spring.

NOTE: Oct 2009 - lifted this from the bed in Aug as it was wilting and for some reason not taking to be planted out. I wonder if the soil was too ericacious as it was planted nect to a large camelia. It recovered once back in a pot, I won't divide it until next year although it looks to be prospering.
