Geum coccineum 'Banana Daiquiri'
APPEARANCE:  Lemon yellow frilled doubled flowers appear from spring into summer. Leaves are herbaceous in cold climates and will die back until spring; evergreen in warmer frost free locations..
USES: Cottage gardens, beds and borders, underplanting below trees, groundcover, in baskets and containers. In the wild, Geum is found in marshy fields and banks of streams, so try it in a wetter part of the garden too.
PLANTING: Plant in most soils, aspects, locations except waterlogged, and very tropical humid climates of FNQ. The sunnier the position the more water it will need. Antarcticly cold-hardy. Shorter-lived in heavy clay soil, longer-lived in free draining light soils.
CARE: Mulch after planting to retain moisture and regulate soil temperatures as the young plant establishes. An application of a native slow release fertiliser in spring will help keep the plant healthy. A light trim after the first spring flowering will encourage a second flush into summer. Divide your plants every 3-4 years to keep them vigorously growing - dig up the plant with a large rootball, tease or cut apart into large pieces, replant these separately.
HEIGHT & WIDTH: 40-50cm H x 30-40 cm W.
YOUR PLANTS: These are tubestock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80 mm x 42 mm wide.
