A couple North American introductions got a lot of attention at Chelsea. Geum ‘Totally Tangerine’ ( which I can’t wait to plant in the new clay garden I created when I dug out my new front steps) is a beautifully airy plant that blooms over a long season, from mid-April to October.

And Eriophorum russeolum, commonly known as red cotton grass is a cold tolerant (even arctic tolerant), native grass for bogs and swamps. I am trying to imagine a perfect site where I can pair these two for a totally wow combo.
