Geum coccineum ‘Koi’
Geum coccineum ‘Koi’ (Pronounced: Jee-um kock-SIN-ee-um)
Just like its namesake, the bright orange flowers of Geum c. ‘Koi’ mimic the brilliant colors of the beloved Koi fish. These compact, clump-forming perennials have deep green, rounded leaves similar to foliage found on Pelargonium plants.
They grow 8-12 inches tall x 15 inches wide and are ideal for mixed containers or front of border plantings. Because they thrive in light, well-drained soil, these plants pair well – and add a splash of color and texture, to rock and succulent gardens.
Plant Geum c. ‘Koi’ in sun along the coast and partial shade inland. They bloom late spring through autumn and will go dormant in winter. Divide the clumps in spring to revitalize the growth, and deadhead spent blooms to promote re-bloom. The 2” flowers attract both Bees and Butterflies, making it a good choice for a pollinator garden. The Sunset Climate Zones are 2-24. We are currently growing Geum coccineum ‘Koi’ in 1 gallon containers.
