Geum 'Cosmopolitan'

Cosmopolitan Avens

Semi-evergreen Perennial

Branching stems decorated with pretty flowers hover atop clumps of coarse green leaves. The creamy petals, edged in coral pink, are semi-double and lend a soft, romantic vibe to the early summer border, blooming from late spring into summer. Remove faded flowers to encourage re-bloom. When thoroughly spent, they may be cut back hard to rejuvenate the semi-evergreen foliage. Cosmopolitan is part of the COCKTAILS™ series. Bred by Brent Horvath of Intrinsic Perennial Gardens.
