The branching, red-tinted stems of Geum urbanum Mai Tai hold its pretty double, pink-flushed apricot flowers, which open from purple buds, above the fuzzy, pointed foliage. It is an early flowerer, from spring to midsummer. The long, wiry stems make the flowers ideal for cutting.
G. Mai Tai is a fully hardy, deciduous perennial that prefers full sun but will also grow in partial shade. Geum are deer resistant and are attractive to butterflies too.
