Prairie Smoke (Geum triflorum)

Prairie Smoke (Geum triflorum)

The silky, flowing styles of the fruiting stage of Prairie Smoke never fail to win admirers at first sight.  When setting seed, large stands of the plant create a gauzy effect that resembles smoke hovering close to the ground.  Blooming in spring to early summer, Prairie Smoke will spread slowly from its roots in well-drained, dry to wet-mesic soils.  It prefers full to partial sun and has a native range from the northern tier of the US through most of Canada.
