Geum triflorum

Prairie Smoke, grandfather's beard, lion's beard

Strong plant with rather small and bizarre flowers, followed by the most incredible seed heads out there. The effect is magical, especially in mass, and because they are seeds and not flowers, it makes the show long lasting. The unique, silver-pink silks make this one of the most extraordinary and most beloved prairie plants!
