Geum Cocktails™ 'Cosmopolitan'

Avens

Also known as Avens, Geum 'Cosmopolitan' offers a soft romantic look to the early summer border. Plants form a low clump of coarse green leaves, with branching stems of semi-double flowers that look like miniature roses. Creamy petals are flushed and edged in rosy-pink. Remove faded flowers regularly to encourage more buds. Plants may be pruned back hard after blooming, to rejuvenate the foliage. Semi-evergreen.
