Geum rivale “Lemon Drops”


Geum ‘Lemon Drops’ has masses of single acid yellow flowers on nodding stems all summer.  It makes tight mats of green foliage which smothers weeds and remains evergreen.  Water Avens prefers a moist soil and is excellent as ground cover in the bog garden or surrounding a pond.

Springing up as a chance seedling in Beth Chatto’s Essex garden, this trim perennial fashions soft yellow blooms and a fresh green dome of scalloped leaves. Citrus-hued sprays unveil single bell-like flowers with orange stamens and green and red calyxes that dangle from arching wine-tinged stems.Ensconced in the frontlines, this low growing Geum offers thirst-quenching accents just right for cooling down a fiery flowered companion like Potentilla ‘Monarch’s Velvet’.
