Geum Mrs Bradshaw

I am a little unusual in that I am the only person on the planet (I think) who doesn’t like the smell of sweet peas, however I haven’t yet met anyone who doesn’t like geums, especially the red one, Mrs Bradshaw. 

 

This little innocuous plant, just sits in the ground, looking frankly, a bit run of the mill, but in Spring up come these flower spikes, and then it bursts into flower with lots of scarlet pom poms. 

 

You can plant loads and loads of these, as they work like little in-fills in the ground, but the sea of red they make is just lovely. They never seem to get eaten by bugs or get diseases, they just flower year after year, they are  bunch of happy little cheerleaders!
