one native species of Geum. G. talbotianum is an uncommon but conspicuous,
prostrate alpine herb. It has large, dark green leaves about 5-10 cm
wide, which are almost entire, but wrinkled. The flowers are large
(~3-5 cm wide), white and solitary on long peduncles. One species, G. urbanum
(with yellow flowers), was considered to have become naturalised
in Tasmania, but now no longer occurs outside of cultivation.
