These fuzzy beauties are Prairie Smoke (geum triflorum). They’re a short (7-8 inches high) prairie plant with serrated leave that turn bright orange in the fall. I have them sited in the rock garden along the front walk and they seem quite happy in that spot. If you plant these guys, be sure to put them in front where you can see them. The soil is clay, unamended except for pea gravel, and this bed receives little supplemental water. Prairie Smoke spread slowly but the clumps do increase over time by creeping rhizomes.
