Geum - Garden Plant

 Feed Sparingly
  • Common Name: Geum - Garden Plant
  • Latin Name: Geum spp., esp. Geum chiloense
  • Family Name: Roseaceae
Geum is not toxic but it has fairly high levels of tannins and so might be unpalatable for some tortoises, and we would advise to feed it sparingly if your tortoise does like it.  The flowers of the garden Geum come in several colours, including red, orange, pink and yellow (with new varieties appearing all the time), and it makes a lovely addition to the garden border. See also Wood Avens and Water Avens.
