Geranium ‘Sue Crug’
at Digging Dog



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 1994 introduction from the highly respected Welsh nursery, Crug Farms, this long-lived G. procurrens and G. lambertii hybrid delivers eye-catching color-rich blooms. Plentiful, cup-shaped pink flowers are composed of violet centers and notched dainty-looking petals with a distinctive network of deep purple veins. Soft-to-the-touch, subtly toothed and lobed, the rounded textural leaves forge a low maintenance medium green mound, which can ramble amongst other perennials, while appreciating a fairly bright abode and a trim to maintain its tidy habit.

Blooms May–June

Size: 16" high x 3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.
