Geranium x cantabrigiense ‘Biokovo’
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 cantabrigiense ‘Biokovo’ full sun  partial shade

Discovered in Croatia’s Biokovo Mountains by German nurseryman Hans Simon, this macrorrhizum and dalmaticum progeny presents pink sepals, unfurling a long lasting flurry of dainty white flowers with prominent pink stamens and rose-colored swathes at the base of each petal. Spreading underground rhizomes and round lobed leaves comprise a low growing, glossy medium green mat that wafts a zestful scent, shows off red-hued autumn leaves and remains mostly evergreen in milder locales. A cinch to cultivate, ‘Biokovo’s tailored profile makes a stylish candidate for pathway edging, rock work and borders, where it effortlessly melds perennials, grasses or small shrubs.

Blooms May-September

Size: 8"–12" high x 18"–2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.
