Patent #: 22041
Breeder Tim Crowther: I crossed Geum coccineum with G. rivale to reinforce the compactness. Then I crossed the best resulting seedlings with G. chiloensis expecting colour breaks - but most of the resulting offspring were dull with rather a lot of plants having small petals like those of G. rivale.

Valleylynn: From those seedlings came G. 'Totally Tangerine'. As you can see from the photos it is an amazing Geum.
