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.
A hybrid of Geranium endressii and Geranium psilostemon, ‘Patricia’ offers deeply cut foliage and months of magenta flowers, which are lighter than those of Geranium psilostemon and have large, star-shaped black eyes. If you appreciate the beauty of simplicity, contrast with the pure white flowers of Philadelphus ‘Snowbelle’.
Blooms June–late October.
Size: 2-1/2' high x 3' wide; hardy to zone 5.
Geranium ‘Patricia’ (P-0528)
