Geranium nodosum ‘Clos du Coudray’
at Digging Dog



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 nodosum ‘Clos du Coudray’ partial shade  shade lover

Recently discovered in some of Normandy’s famed gardens, this European native bestows a steady supply of violet flowers with dark striations, pronounced light margins and deeply notched petal tips. Elongated shallow rhizomes spawn fine hummocks, shaped by lustrous green leaves, sporting 3 to 5 shallowly toothed lobes and warm russet tones as they mature. ‘Clos du Coudray’s valiant cold hardy habit produces late season blooms, enjoys well-drained soil and exhibits superb shade tolerance, even under dry conditions.

Size: 15" high x 18" wide. Zone 5/6.
