mid-May–mid-October.



<i>Geranium</i> ‘Nimbus’

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.

With a name that summons celestial visions, ‘Nimbus’ is light on its feet. A preeminent sterile hybrid between Geranium collinum and Geranium ‘Kashmir Purple’, this Geranium puts on a splendid display of violet blossoms defined by spaced petals, darker purple veins and white centers. The starry violet flowers float above large and loosely arranged, fine-feathered foliage. Position near Salvia ‘Caradonna’ for a fusion of purple.

Size: 2' 0" high x 3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.
