Description :

A little background:

Once upon a time (*), in the land of Musala, in the far-off mountains of Rila, the botanist Wilhelm Schlacht, was out for a walk with good King Boris III of Bulgaria.

Early in the morning, on a hilly path, he discovered a very beautiful little plant.

Какво е това чудо ? (**) He said as he bent down to pick a flower.

Thus was named Geum x borissi, hybrid of Geum bulgaricum x Geum reptans !

It forms a compact clump 40 cm high including the flowers. Luminous orangey-red flowers in May-June.

Flowers continue sporadically during the summer and autumn.

Geum coccineum 'Borisii' or Boris Avens is a great addition to a rock garden or the front of a mixed border. We like to plant it underneath the sumptuous Crocosmia 'Zealtan'.

It also works well as a container plant combined with a coloured foliage carex.

Grow in the sun or partial shade in moist, fertile soil.

(*) All good stories start with Once upon a time...

(**) Translation from the Bulgarian: What is this marvel?

Synonyms: Geum coccineum 'Tango', Geum coccineum 'Cooky', Geum 'Borisii', Geum 'Queen of Orange'.
