Yellow Tempo™ Geum, Geum Yellow Tempo™, or Yellow Tempo™ Avens is a dependable, long-blooming perennial with 1-inch, roselike, semi-double, lemon-yellow blooms that burst forth from pink buds, beginning in spring and lasting until late summer. Perched atop wiry dark-purple stems that grow to a height of 14 to 20 inches, the luscious flowers of this striking Geum will keep your cottage garden sunny for the entire season. The Yellow Tempo™ is semi-evergreen, and the leaves are divided into many wispy leaflets, forming an elegant, green mound at the base of the plant that has a spread from 14 to 24 inches.
Yellow Tempo™ Geum, bred by Terra Nova Nurseries, has a vigorous, mounding growth habit and has flirty, ruffled blooms and strawberry-like foliage. Native to Asia, New Zealand, and Africa, the Yellow Tempo™ Geum attracts multitudes of butterflies and pollinators, and is deer and rabbit resistant. Geum is excellent as a cut flower and adds a sprig of sunshine yellow to any bouquet or arrangement.
Yellow Tempo™ Geum Care
Yellow Tempo™ Geum should be planted in full to partial sun or dappled shade. In warmer climates, some shade may be necessary to preserve your Geum. Yellow Tempo™ prefers moist, loamy soil that is well-drained. Soil that is too wet can be fatal to the plant. Geum should receive regular watering.
Deadhead the spent flowers of your Yellow Tempo™ regularly to encourage long-term reblooming.
Yellow Tempo™ Geum Spacing
Yellow Tempo™ Geum looks excellent when planted en masse. It works well along borders and can be grown in containers as a thriller or a filler. Geum should be planted at least 18 inches apart from center to center. They are perfect for creating attractive cottage ground covers and can be planted as annuals if preferred. Plant alongside bellflower, daisies, heuchera, and hydrangeas for a colorful, spring-flowering garden.
