Geum rivale - Water Avens

Water Avens

An attractive native plant, Geum rivale is a medium-sized, rather slow-growing, rhizomatous, herbaceous perennial which thrives in wet meadows and as a marginal plant beside streams. The soft green basal leaves are rounded and lobed, and the leaves on the deep-red stems are tripartite. From May to September, the plant bears delicate, nodding, bell-shaped flowers, dusty coral-pink with golden stamens and purplish-red sepals; the flowers are attractive to pollinators. A pretty, feathery burr of hooked seeds persists on the plant when the petals drop. Water avens can also be grown as a bog plant or even in shallow water, to a maximum depth of 3”/8cm.
