Prairie Smoke

$8.95 $6.95

Native
Geum triflorum
   Also known as Old Man’s Whiskers
This perennial wildflower is an attractive little plant that should be cultivated more often. The reddish flowers remain attractive for 2-3 months during both the blooming period and afterwards as the achenes develop. It is an easy plant to identify because no other Geum sp. (Avens) within develops achenes with long feathery tails. 
The ‘smoke’ is when setting seed, large stands of the plant create a gauzy effect that resembles smoke hovering close to the ground.  Blooming in spring to early summer, Prairie Smoke will spread slowly from its roots in well-drained, dry to wet soils.  Ours bloom first year due to their age/size.
