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.
A hybrid of Geranium pratense and Geranium clarkei ‘Kashmir Purple’, ‘Brookside’ displays its deep violet-blue flowers all summer long. Against a backdrop of finely divided foliage, the pink-veined flowers with pale central eyes appear even more striking.
Size: 2-1/2' high x 2-1/2' wide; hardy to zone 5.
