Plant Features

The Alabama Slammer Geum Plant is an amazing Avens variety that is quite vigorous and considered a bit longer-lasting than some other cultivars. Wine-colored buds give way to startling and surprising orange petals tinged with shades of rosy pink through reddish-orange. The frilly yellow center is the coup-de-grace on this tiny, but ostentatious, cousin of the rose. The blossom opens atop burgundy stems above light green foliage and is a real show-stopper!

"Spring blooming plants"

Comment: Geum is a spring-blooming plant. The range listed can vary, depending on the variety and the environmental conditions. Typically they are not a reblooming plant, although deadheading during the bloom period will encourage a few more blooms and help to extend the season.

Comment: Can anyone tell me why both my Geums bloomed in May and once those flowers died off, not a hint of buds? They are supposed to bloom til late summer. Thanks!

Comment: I purchased 2 Geums last summer. It is end of April here on LI and both of them have been in bloom for a week. Alabama Slammer has about a dozen flowers, Flames of Passion has about 5 with buds. Last year Flames remained about 4" high all summer so I thought I was going to lose it. I think it needed to acclimate to soil that was close to a concrete walk which happens sometimes (the concrete changes the soil somehow). This really are little charmers, I am ordering more for the lower areas.
