Geum (Avens)
A genus that contains over 50 species of perennials from regions of Europe, Asia, New
Zealand, North and South American, and Africa.  These perennials are found growing in
mountainous areas, moist meadows, arctic woodlands, and temperate regions.  The single
flowers are borne singly on tall stems, in late spring to early summer, above the pinnate or
pinnatisect leaves of mid-green coloration.
Geum Growing Tips
  • Plant in a well-drained soil that has been enriched with organic matter, or already has a
    good organic content.  
  • A pH range of 5.5 - 7.0 is essential for optimum growth.  
  • Incorporating compost into the planting hole feeds a growing plant and makes for a
    larger and longer display of blooms.
  • A mulch application around plants helps maintain soil moisture and temperature.
  • Cut spent flowering stalks back to the basal rosette of leaves.
  • Divisions can be accomplished in the fall of the third year from transplanting.
