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 plant 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 Schizachryrium scoparium Blaze or Schizachyrium scoparium Prairie Blues. Extremely cold hardy. (seed propagated).
