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.
Glossy, deep green, Maple-like foliage and a spreading habit combine for a lush, leafy look in the
darker corners of your garden. While the pale lavender flowers of this species are not as numerous as other Geraniums, they bloom over a far greater time, even in heavy shade. With a drift of yellow blooming Kirengeshoma, our Geranium nodosum lives happily under Heptacodium
miconioides, where it never fails to please.
Size: 8" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 7.
