Geum triflorum

Geum triflorum

Prairie Smoke

Prairie Smoke or Old Man's Whiskers is admired for its beautiful airy seedheads, which look like patches of pink blowing mist in June and July.  The actual flowers are a soft reddish pink, borne on nodding stems in May.  After pollination, they turn upward to reveal their feathery pink "smoke".   The dramatic fruit display is reminiscent of smoke billowing in the wind. Geum triflorum slowly spreads to make a low groundcover, and is particularly showy when naturalized in masses in dry low meadow settings.
