Common in temperate regions. In New Zealand they vary in height from 18 in. to 3 ft. Geum Magellanicum has large handsome leaves, and numerous flowers of a beautiful butter-cup yellow.
I found a number of plants growing along the shores of Lake Rotoiti, Nelson district.
Geum parviflorum is a much smaller plant, flowers yellow, sometimes white.
Alt. 2000 to 5000 feet.
