Mrs. Bradshaw Geum color change?

squireletteJuly 27, 2009

We bought a Mrs Bradshaw Geum. It had very red flowers, now the flowers are coming out more orange. Is it a soil deficiency or is the flower color of this variety not stable. It is not settling in very well, we also got a yellow variety that seems to be doing much better although it is not blooming yet. Any ideas please. Thanks

Is it in full sun or part shade? In full sun many dark colored flowers fade especially if it is very hot and they are newly planted. The one that is not blooming doesn't have to make blooms at the same time as it is trying to settle in it's roots. Is there any way you can shade it during the hottest part of the day. Perhaps put a flower pot in front of it. Then make sure has enough moisture to keep the ground wet (but not sopping) around it's roots
