Geranium ‘Dilys’
at Digging Dog

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 ‘Dilys’ full sun  partial shade

Named for British Geranium aficionado Dilys Davis, this carefree Geranium sanguineum and Geranium procurrens cross strikes a low spreading floriferous stance. Thick, rich green deeply cut leaves present a bevy of 5-petaled bright pinkish purple flowers marked by saturated purple eyes and veins, promising to energize the garden from early summer ‘til the first frosty night. ‘Dilys’ is a top-notch vigorous ground cover that tolerates poor drainage, adapts to sun or shade and celebrates a well-earned AGM status.

Size: 10" high x 2' 0"–3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

“My plants arrived from Digging Dog yesterday: healthy, large, beautifully packed, and on time. From the website to the customer service to the arrival of these lovely grasses, this has been a very satisfying experience. Although website ordering is easy, I encourage you to call your order in to benefit from the friendly and knowledgeable staff.”
