Geranium ‘Sirak’
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.

Occurring naturally in German plantsman Hans Simon’s garden, this well-loved G. gracile x G. ibericum hybrid flaunts legions of 5-petaled deep lavender-pink flowers with delicate, yet prominent dark purple veins that radiate from greenish white centers. The astounding floral display is poised well above large, neat, deeply cut bright green leaves. A first-class AGM winner, lusty ‘Sirak’ makes an ebullient, easy-to-blend partner for Campanulas, Astrantia and Lupines.

Size: 15"–18" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Customer Comment:

“I just visited Digging Dog Nursery over the weekend, and was very impressed, both by their plants and their beautifully landscaped surroundings. They have a wide range of plants (many which you don't see elsewhere) and everything was healthy, vigorous and picture perfect. The word which comes to mind is "cherished." I bought a few of these beauties and they are blooming already!”
