Prairie Smoke’s pink, bell-shaped blooms create a unique show in the late spring to early summer. This native wildflower gets its name from the flowers as they go to seed; the bells open up and create wispy, silky blooms that resemble smoke. Fern-like foliage turns to a deep shade of red in the winter months. Spectacular! Deer resistant and drought tolerant. (Perennial)

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Plant Information

Prairie Smoke, or Geum triflorum, is a native prairie flower that will spread slowly in your garden or meadow. Despite being slow to establish in your garden, it is well worth the wait as the flowers fade and the smoke-like feathery tails emerge, adding texture and movement in the breeze. Prairie Smoke grows best in dry, well-draining soil with full sun (at least six hours per day).

Growing to be only 6-18”, this prairie flower is perfect for a small space or border garden. Prairie Smoke, also known as Old Mans Whiskers or Purple Avens, is perfect for rock gardens and is deer resistant. We recommend giving the plants some space and not overcrowding it in a bed with taller perennials. All of the seed we handle at American Meadows is non-GMO, neonicotinoid-free and guaranteed to grow.
