Geum ‘Mrs J. Bradshaw’ looks lovely waving among the perennials and roses, she is light and airy with a bold splash of scarlet colour waving around up to 60 -90cm high.
She is a bit prickly though as spiky little seed heads form all summer long.
So with lots of seeds and splitting the clump in spring and summer I hope to have a whole flock of Mrs J. Bradshaw’s. Highly recommended. Good for bees. Common name Avens.
I like that William Morris included Avens in one of his most popular designs ‘Blackthorn’, although he depicted a water Avens which are now rare in the wild unlike in his time when it was common in the UK along river and waterways.
