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.

This hybrid between Geranium procurrens and Geranium psilostemon was raised by the amateur gardener Rev. O. G. Folkard. Its deeply cut, bright, yellowish green leaves trail and twine gracefully amidst stunning saucer-shaped, black-eyed, dusky magenta flowers. Such color and form make ‘Ann Folkard’ an uplifting neighbor for bluish or dark green foliage plants like Panicum ‘Cloud Nine’ and Euphorbia ‘John Tomlinson’.

Blooms May–September.

Size: 2' high x 3'–4' wide; hardy to zone 5.
