Geum rivale 'Leonard's Variety' (from web)

By the time I got home yesterday I was dog tired and only this afternoon did I start unpacking the car and potting up my new plants.

Thank you so much to everyone for your expansive generosity!

But, despite remembering being given the following four plants, I have no memory whatsoever of who gave them to me, Can anyone please advise?

Not me.

AitAlainn AitAlainn 06 March 2011 23:08:27

Nor me! Love that geum.

Jacinta D Jacinta D 06 March 2011 23:10:19

Me too. I'm digging up my Geums tomorrow (Yellow, and red). There for the taking. Only the common ones though, so I reckon they'll end up on the compost heap.

It was me :-)

I was having the same problem Rachel. I think I've just figured out you also gave me Aster 'Lady in Blue'? I thought it was from Keego but then I remembered we talked about it in the autumn?

Rachel Rachel 07 March 2011 00:09:13

What? All of them, in addition to the other plants, Margaret? Thank you very much indeed : ) Any idea of the colour of the Potentilla?

Yep, Alison, Lady in Blue, Jerusalem artichokes and Thalictum delevayii were from me.

Jacinta do not kill any geums they are lovely..

Jacinta D Jacinta D 07 March 2011 08:56:51

I won't kill them, Jurga. I will pot them up. I want that area for the new Dahlias I bought on Saturday. I'll bring them to the next meeting, if I'm free for it.

I have never seen that colour Geum it's beautiful. 

Hosta Hosta 07 March 2011 11:22:50

Rachel its the same as the photo on your journal.  Enjoy

Oh Rachel, I love that Geum.  I have not had a minute to put up a journal but thank you to everyone that gave me plants, they are all planted!

Rachel Rachel 07 March 2011 22:37:44

Hosta, what's the same as the photo on my journal? The colour of the potentilla is the same as the colour of the geum in my profile pic?

Eilish Eilish 07 March 2011 23:06:53

Rachel, I think I gave you a potentilla (if its a very small one) which I grew from seed  -  no idea what colour it will be (in exchange for the abutilon !). Eilish

Rachel Rachel 07 March 2011 23:09:30

Ah, did you, Eilish. So sorry for forgetting. It was a confusing time! Well, thank you very much : )

Hosta Hosta 08 March 2011 18:42:53

Sorry for the confusion Rachel, bit of a senior moment I'm afraid. 

Rachel Rachel 10 March 2011 15:07:41

We were all confused after the plant exchange, Margaret  :P
