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.

Giant fanciful leaves—deeply dissected, lustrous, aromatic and the largest, up to 8 in. across, in the genus—set this dramatic Geranium apart. Hailing from the island of Madeira, its tall stout trunk supports a lush shrubby arrangement of lacy overlapping foliage and thick, tapered brownish red stems. Copious, densely set fuzzy buds and white pink-eyed flowers populate huge trusses that bloom for months. Resplendent in a container, ‘Guernsey White’ appreciates average moisture, needs protection from hot sun and heavy frosts, and easily reseeds.

Blooms June – August.

Size: 4' 0" high x 3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 9.

As Summer draws to a close....

September is a transitory month in the garden. As summer’s end approaches, the shadows are growing longer and the days are becoming shorter. This time of year may find some landscapes a tad lackluster. When designing your garden, you may wish to include plants that remain perky thoughout the season or experience their heyday now. The plants featured in this newsletter provide a lot of late season oomph and promise to beckon you down the pathways of your garden.

Our next guided Saturday Stroll is September 16th., followed by October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
