Geum Totally Tangerine is a delightful, abundantly blooming, ground cover perennial with a long season of interest. With rosettes of hairy, scalloped, fresh emerald green leaves from early Spring followed on upright, sturdy stems by apricot orange flowers from May to late August. This cheerful perennial brightens up a sunny garden border. Deadhead spent flowers to bring a fresh flush of ongoing blooms and remove stems that stop flowering to encourage new growth . Bees love Geums as every long wiry stem produces multiple flowers for them to feast on.
Low maintenance, Geum Totally Tangerine will complement most gardens from a cottage style informal layout to more architectural planting schemes, ideal for the front or middle of a border partnered with hellebores, Lychnis, Verbena or Crocosmia. They are also very effective planted in pots on the terrace or balcony – just remember to keep them well watered. Simply deadhead spent flowers to encourage a second, or even third flowering!

Geum Totally Tangerine ground cover will die back to ground level in Winter and fresh new growth will appear in Spring. They are happiest in full sun, and require moist but well-drained soil. They will not thrive in soil that becomes waterlogged. To maintain them simply cut back any tatty or brown foliage from the previous year in early Spring and divide any clumps that become congested in early Spring or late Autumn.
As a rough guide when planting Geum Totally Tangerine as ground cover – 4 plants per square metre is adequate with a little patience, 6 will give better coverage, and 9-12 will make a weed supressing carpet very quickly.
