Geranium ‘Anne Thomson’
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.

Sharing the same parentage and flowers identical to ‘Ann Folkard’, this 2005 AGM winner, introduced by esteemed Geranium breeder, Alan Bremmer, boasts a tidier more compact and heat tolerant habit than its golden-leafed garden rival. The low-spreading vigorous mound dazzles us with fulgent yellow foliage and a succession of 1 in. wide, black-eyed dark magenta blooms. Appreciative of bright shade, regular water during extended dry spells and a hard annual pruning, ‘Anne Thomson’ is a well mannered weaver and a choice contender for flashy front-of-the border medleys.

Size: 18" high x 3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.
