Geum triflorum

Prairie Smoke

Attractive red flowers bloom in spring in groups of three (hence "triflorum") and resemble rose hips. These are followed by unusual feathery pink seedheads, which give the appearance of smoke when they sway in the breeze. This low-growing plant (6-12 inches) is a native of the northern United States, the Midwest, and parts of Canada. Prefers dry, sandy soil and sun, but tolerates some shade.
