Geum ‘Bell Bank’

Geum Bell Bank - suburban-gardenApril’s plant of the month is Geum ‘Bell Bank’.

These are useful plants for woodland type settings and will flower after the first flush of spring colour.

I’ve collected geums ever since a holiday to Northumberland where I brought my first geum at a local market. Since then I’ve learnt that they prefer moist, well-drained, rich soil but will cope with being placed in pots. I don’t know what it is about geums but I think they are so beautiful.
