Product Description

Also known as Avens, Geum rivale Mai Tai offers a soft romantic look to the early summer border. Plants form a low clump of coarse green leaves, with branching red-green stems held above bearing medium-sized rounded flowers. This particular selection has ruffled, semi-double to single, apricot flowers blushed with rose that lighten to peach as they mature & make excellent cut flowers. Remove faded flowers regularly to encourage more buds. Plants may be pruned back hard after blooming, to rejuvenate the foliage. Clumps should be divided every 3 to 4 years in spring or fall. Semi-evergreen.
