Geranium x oxonianum ‘Walter's Gift’
at Digging Dog

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.

Geranium x oxonianum ‘Walter's Gift’ full sun  partial shade

Named for the Essex home where this lovely Geranium. x oxonianum and Geranium versicolor hybrid first appeared, ‘Walter’s Gift’ hosts a dashing low growing clump characterized by shiny divided green leaves, each centrally splashed with irregular dark maroon markings. A prominent netting of rosy lavender veins embellishes delicate pale pink flowers that generously bloom for months above the artful close-knit foliage. Adapting to sunny or partially shaded nooks, it spurns deer and bunnies and can be installed alongside Alchemilla ‘Robusta’.

Size: 15" high x 18"–2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.
