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.

Hailing from Nepal and named for the man who discovered it in 1984, this attractive Geranium begets droves of very large saucer-shaped white flowers delicately veined with purple on thin stems. The long lasting floral display crests neat fine-hewn bright green leaves, crafting a fantastic carpet-like cover that broadcasts brilliant red shades in autumn, keeps weeds and rabbits at bay, charms the bees, and withstands drought.

Size: 16"–18" high x 18"–2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.
