Geum ‘Bell Bank’ is one of the plants the late Geoffrey Smith raised in his garden in Kettlesing in Yorkshire.  It is a cross with one parent being Geum rivale (Water Avens) and has pendant dark red buds, opening to orangey-red, semi-double flowers. These slowly become upright. The bright green leaves are semi-evergreen and form good mounds in moist cool conditions. Sterile. Hardiness zone H7. Pot size 1.5 litre.

Care & Maintenance.

Divide plants in early autumn. Geums are best divided every four or so years as the centre of the plant may begin to become exposed and weaken.
