Details

12-15" tall x 18" wide (seed-propagated). The prairie look-alike of Apache Plume (Fallugia), Geum's charming, nodding pink spring flowers give rise to feathery, smoky-pink seed heads that decorate the plants in mid-summer. Spreading slowly from its roots, Prairie Smoke can be used as a small-scale groundcover. Grows easily in lean-to-average fertility garden soils. A nice companion for the various prairie grasses like Little Blue Stem (Schizachyrium). Extremely cold hardy.

Comments about High Country Gardens Geum trifolium:

I'm not even sure where this ended up in my garden: once planted it never took off and died back. Big disappointment.

    Comments about High Country Gardens Geum trifolium:

    I planted this plant last spring, and it did nothing all year, but this spring, it has several flower buds and is about to bloom. Typical of a perennial, I expect it to take off this summer.

    Q & A

    USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

    To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

    • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
    • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
