Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
There aren’t many hardy perennials which offer pure orange flowers, but Geums excel in this colour range and Geum ‘Borisii’ is no exception. The single, red-orange flowers with golden stamens aren’t showy but their exceptionally vivid colour really pops in the border, especially when paired with purples and violets such as Verbena rigida. The flowers are held at the end of upright stems, just above neat mounds of scalloped leaves which carpet the ground. Like other geums, it has a long flowering season, and with regular deadheading will continue from late spring until the end of summer. Height and Spread: 30cm (12”).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Geums dislike soils which are prone to waterlogging in winter. Plant them in moist, fertile, well drained soil, adding plenty of compost or well rotted manure to amend heavy clay or sandy soils. Choose a position towards the front of the border in full sun.
Water regularly until plants are fully established. Regular deadheading will encourage more flowers to be produced throughout the summer. In spring, lift and divide overcrowded clumps of geum to maintain their vigour.
