Geranium

Cranesbill

We’re talking about hardy Geraniums, not the better-known, anything-but-subtle Pelargoniums. True Geraniums are sturdy yet refined, with five-petaled flowers borne on dainty stems close to the palmately-divided leaves.

Their spectrum of colors, from cool to electric, is rivaled only by their ability to create soft mounds and flowing carpets of lush foliage in ordinary garden soil. We plant a succession of varieties to always have some in bloom from spring to fall. Our selections are easily grown and will rebloom after flowering if lightly trimmed. Most die back in winter.

‘Mavis Simpson’ has pale, satiny pink flowers borne on trailing stems covering a choice mounding carpet of soft gray-green. For greatest impact, plant it on 12 in. centers. This Geranium looks just right with Origanum ‘Bristol Cross’, and Saponaria ‘Max Frei’.

Blooms May–October.

Size: 8" high x 2-1/2' wide. Zone 6/7.

“As a customer of many years' standing, long before online gardening was even possible, I can testify that the plants from Digging Dog have been consistently healthy and hardy through the years. They are also the biggest plants I've ever received by mail. Enormous root systems!”
