There have been a lot of new geums appearing on the scene in recent years, with the Cocktail series garnering much of the attention - and quite rightly, as they are a great collection of individually attractive plants. Frilly is, however, where things are taking us now on the geum front, and Pink Petticoats is a prime example of that trend, with the ruffled petals maximising their pink shades. We suppose, given its appearance, that the naming process was a bit of a no-brainer.

One of the attractions of geums is the fact that they don’t require full sun to flower well; indeed, a touch of midday shade suits them just fine. While many do most of their flowering in one big late spring into early summer display, Pink Petticoats extends the show rather longer and can be in bloom from April to July.

Little maintenance is necessary. Deadhead as required and, in spring, remove some of the older leaves to allow the clump to be freshened up by the new growth.

Geum Pink Petticoats is a hardy evergreen perennial with serrated leaves and frilly peachy pink semi-double flowers in summer suitable for sun or semi-shade.
