You'll be seeing red with this plant - but not in a bad way, you could only ever gaze at this perennial fondly with its bold and showy blooms. Geum Mrs Bradshaw is known for attracting bees due to its nectar-pollen-rich-flowers, and it is incredibly versatile growing in beds, borders and pots - you can even take cut flowers from its delightful blooms, too.
This plant's name, Geum, is Greek and means ‘to give flavor or relish’. This is because the plant has been used for flavouring food and drink since Roman times. Delicious!
Geum Mrs Bradshaw is part of the Rosaceae family and native to Chile. They will grow best when positioned in either full sun or some shade. Water regularly, ensuring soil is moist not soggy. Deadhead to encourage more flower production.

Jo's Top Tip
The leaves of a Geum will may become brown by the end of winter, so don't be afraid to give this plant a haircut to remove any old leaves and neaten up its appearance.
