Geranium monacense Claudine Dupont

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 monacense ‘Claudine Dupont’ partial shade

From the namesake’s French nursery, this shade lover produces generous clumps of broad medium green leaves and reflexed smoky pink blossoms. Emphasizing unique details, each pastel-hued flower features protruding stamens and a white eye trimmed with a slate blue ring and dark veins. Strong growing palmate foliage is divided into toothed lobes, which impart subtle chocolate blotches, bright yellowish greens in early spring and lots of oomph during dry spells.

Blooms April–September.

Size: 18" high x 15" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Customer Comment:

“I don't know how you folks do it, but the plants were in immaculate condition, cool and slightly damp upon arrival without a leaf out of place!  ...Digging Dog deserves high praise for being able to accomplish such a feat from one sizzling hot coast to another.”
