Flower Fest: G is for Geum

In Birds and Bees on December 11, 2006 at 8:03 pm


At last I have something to share on Flower Fest.

G is for Gulab, but I will tell you about this pretty flower, photographed at Auli, this past August (for more on the Valley of Flowers trip check here and here).

Geum is a genus of about 50 species of perennial herbaceous plants from the rose family. They are closely related to Potentilla (which will feature later in ‘P’!). The plant flowers from June to August. The flower colour can range from the more common yellows to red-orange like the one pictured here.

Geum elatum
Common Name : Avens

  1. Beautiful flower and cool info!

  2. oooo thats beautiful. Happy to see you at flowerfest :D.

  3. Lovely rose! It certainly opens your eyes (mine, at least) to the fact that there is more to roses than the white, pink, orange and red roses we see at the florist’s! It took me a while to figure out that a picture of a yellow flower I have is a rose! I still haven’t narrowed it down to exact genus etc but it’s a lot like your red Avens. Glad to have you back at the Flower Fest!

  4. What a beautiful flower !

  5. Great picture…plus wanted to say, thanks for passing by my blog. Glad you liked the dal with dill but I have never tried dill with carrots. I will try it for sure, do you have a recipe…thanks…~smile~

    Hi Dilip. Yes I do, coming soon!
