Plant of the Week: Geum “East of Eden”

We grow a lot of geums. They are such good doers and stand up to the unpredictable early spring weather so well. Among our favourites is “East of Eden” bred by Roger Proud at his nursery of the same name near Penrith.Other favourites are “Lionel Cox”- a lovely soft creamy yellow tinged with pink- and “Bell Bank” which is a gorgeous soft, brick red. All will do well in sun or part shade in moist soil.
