Water Avens (Geum rivale) Seeds
A unique and beautiful wildflower, water avens thrives in damp environments and is often found along riversides. It has red stems, green leaves, and produces pale, peachy nodding flowers. Ideal for planting next to a pond or as ground cover in cool, damp areas where other plants often struggle. Also known as Indian Chocolate, the roots of the plant are edible and sometimes used as a herbal remedy.
Water avens is wonderful for wildlife, attracting all types of pollinators from bees to dragonflies, along with other insects. Frogs and newts will come to eat the insects this plant attracts, and also enjoy sheltering under the plant in the shade. Flowers from May to September. This is a perfect flower for bog gardens.
