Geum aleppicum (yellow avens) 3'h, yellow flower mid-late summer, moist to wet soil, part to full sun, native to northeast US

Prairie Moon Nursery was the source of these plants. These lush and healthy plants were planted late 2011 as small bare root pieces. That method is effective and economical,
there are no plastic pots involved, and digging is much easier.
