‘Total Tangerine’ Avens is a showy cross between Geum rivale and Geum chiloense ‘Mrs. Bradshaw,’ hybridized by Timothy Crowther of England. Geum x ‘Totally Tangerine’ carries its large tangerine orange flowers in large fuzzy sprays high above the green foliage clump. The bloom period is long, from late spring to mid summer. Like most sterile plants it flowers for an extended period and if deadheaded, ‘Totally Tangerine’ will occasionally rebloom as temperatures moderate in early fall. We love the large number of bright orange flowers in our perennial borders, and the added advantage of deer resistance is welcome.
PRN Preferred: The orange long-lasting blooms are striking, and the vigorous green foliage always looks fresh.
