New This Week

April 1, 2024

Plant of the Week: Geum

Three Varieties this Season

We love this beautiful low maintenance, reliable, and adaptable plant!

Geums are both an early blooming flower and also a long blooming flower, so you can enjoy their vibrant color throughout the season! And pollinators love them! With mounding foliage, they are a relatively low growing plant and the blooms provide height without obstruction. The leaves can be semi-evergreen for fall and winter interest. Their long graceful stems and gorgeous blooms make for a great cut flower.

We are carrying three varieties at Painters this season. Find them in 6" pots for $8.50 or 1G for $14.00.
