The bright red of the Prairie Smoke flowers stands out amongst the prairie grasses.
Geum triflorum, (three-flowered avens, old man’s whiskers, or prairie smoke) is a spring perennial herbaceous plant. The descriptive name, Prairie Smoke, comes from its unusual feathery mauve seed heads that resemble plumes of smoke.
