Geum magellanicum

Family rosaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z7-11)
Flowers red (summer-fall)
Size 36"
Light sun-part shade
Cultural notes ordinary garden soil (not too dry)

Chilean species that may not be quite hardy for us - we'll see. In any case, it's supposed to bloom in its first year from seed, so I have good hope of witnessing its show. The shiny toothed leaves mound to about 12", with the flowers held well above.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
