ALABAMA SLAMMER AVENS
For a dazzling spring show, plant geum in groups towards the front of the border. Slender burgundy stems rise from the low growing clumps of light green, glossy foliage. Wine-colored buds explode open with ruffled, mostly double blooms. Each flower is unique in tones of orange, red, and gold. Frilly yellow centers glowingly contrast against the petals. Remove spent flowers to encourage rebloom. Plants can be sheared back once flowering is done to rejuvenate the foliage.
