Features

notes
Geum Nonna provides lovely ground cover at the front of the border with a clump of elegantly cut leaves. In the summer, rising above the attractive deciduous foliage, are a mass of brown/purple buds that open into a vibrant show of semi-double flowers with brilliant golden yellow petals washed round the margins with deep orange, surrounding beautiful eyes.
Insights

‘Nonna’ is grandmother in Italian, a word which conjures up a notion of warmth, giving and ideally homemade pasta! This Geum makes a perfect present to offer a grandmother, but setting all sentimentality aside, it is a hardy perennial that provides an astounding and life enhancing blaze of colour in the border.
