Geum quellyon

Geum quellyon Sweet (syn.: G. chiloense Balbis) (S-Am.) – An exceptional and ephemeral escape from cultivation. Recorded in 2004 in Sint-Gillis-Waas (Stropersbos), close to a former railway track and in 2016 on a construction site in Zwevegem.

The exact identity of scarlet-flowered plants in cultivation is somewhat critical, mainly as a result of artificial crossings (see also Jäger & al. 2008).
