A fairly recent introduction, one of a series named after cocktail drinks, Mai Tai forms an evergreen clump of slightly hairy serrated leaves. From early summer onwards wiry burgundy red stems bear semi-double flowers, all ruffles and frills, in a lovely shade of apricot with hints of pink. Amazing. Sun or semi-shade. Any reasonable soil. 18 in. 9cm pot, good size plant.

We will certainly raise a glass to this little beauty. We wonder if geums are shaping up to be the next big thing, given the number of new varieties that are appearing in recent times. No denying they are easy and reliable performers.
