Is it a rose?  Or isn't it...  This fully double bloom of rich red is borne on a unique perennial known as Geum or commonly as Avens.  'Blazing Sunset' is a remarkable cultivar that sports blooms of rich red hues and exceptional sizes.  If not paying close enough attention they do resemble their cousin the rose.  This geum blooms over a long period in late spring and into summer.  The mid-green foliage is attractive if soil is kept moist when plants are out of bloom  Easy to grow and never needs dividing.
