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.

Recently introduced from Turkey, this impressive perennial promotes vibrant blue-violet blooms atop lusty mounds of good-sized verdant leaves. Dark green and broad, the textured hairy foliage is divided into 9 segments, each toothed and lobed; come fall it blazes with red and yellow highlights. ‘Turco’s low growing stance and plentiful floral details–deep purple veins, intricately etched on overlapping petals and soft colored centers–merit an upfront position in the border or along a garden path.

Blooms June–July.

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