“Masses of apricot flowers” is how Laurie describes Geum ‘Totally Tangerine’. She goes on to say, “The apricot color is gorgeous when paired with the tall dark violet flower spikes of Veronica ‘Royal Candles.”
Laurie finds this Geum to be hardy and mentions that there is also a yellow blooming variety.
Geum ‘Totally Tangerine’ has deep fuzzy foliage that forms a mound about 14” tall. When in full bloom, the plants can reach 30”. The spread is 18”.
Prefers 6 hours of direct sun.
Blooms late spring to midsummer.
Deadheading promotes a longer flowering time and rebloom.
Geum is also available in shades of yellow, red, and orange.
Companion plants might include Coreopsis ‘Presto’, Leucanthemum ‘Becky’ (Shasta Daisy), Paeonia ‘Karl Rosenfield’, Penstemon ‘Dark Towers’, Phlox paniculate ‘Purple Flame’, and Salvia ‘Cardonna’.
