$7.99

'Wet Kiss' = avens hybrid with up-facing, vermilion/orange semi-double flowers (1 and1/4" in diameter). Red sport of famous cultivar 'Mai Tai', but with richer colors, red stems and buds!

Good cultivar in Chicago Botanic Gardens trials, gaining 4 out of 5 stars.

Blooms from mid May to late June

Clumps of fuzzy semi-evergreen leaves, height10/18" (w/wo flowers) x 18" wide. More or less ground-covering mounds.

Full sun, half-shade, preferably loamy soils, loamy clay, organic rich soils, that stay medium to medium-moist (but NOT waterlogged).

Avens do like cooler climate, areas with cooler nights - so they will perform better in upper Midwest or coastal areas, in hotter climate find cooler spot in half shade (afternoon/early evening shade).

They will tolerate some summer droughts (each cultivar differs some), but leaves may scorch or turn brown and plant will re-sprout with more moisture.

 

Deer and rabbit resistant plant, butterfly and bee friendly.

Hardy in zones 4 - 7.

'Wet Kiss' was introduced by famous plantsman Brent Horvath (Intrinsic Perennial Gardens, Hebron, Illinois). This cultivar is patented under patent no. PP27227 - propagation is prohibited.

 

Geum x hybrids are excellent border perennials, with flowers reminding of little roses (they belong to Rose family - Rosaceae), they go well with many perennials, best planted in the front of the flower bed.

Good combination are with Amsonia, hardy Geraniums, Iris, Nepeta, Heuchera, Hemerocalis, Hosta (in half-shade), Paeonia, Salvia or any other border perennials and medium sized grasses like Sporobolus, Schizachyrium or shorter cultivars of Panicum.

Geums tolerate half-shade, so they can combined with half-shade, dappled sun/shade woodland edge/ woodland perennials  - Aquilegia, Anemone x hupehensis, Chelone, Chrysogonum, Dicentra, Gillenia, Helleborus, Heuchera, Hosta, Lobelia, Primula, Polemonium, Polygonatum, Polygonum, Tradescantia, Tricyrtis, Spigellia, or sedges - Carex.
