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.

An all-around superb performer, ‘Langthorn’s Blue’ earns its keep in our garden for its strong stature, handsome foliage and long bloom display. The reflexed light violet-blue flowers are centered in paler shades as they rise just above an upright, somewhat compact mound of medium green leaves patterned with deep maroon splotches. The dark foliage of Cotinus ‘Grace’ adds rich contrasting color and a subtle echo of burgundy.

Blooms April–August.

Size: 18" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.
