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.
With silky, fine-feathered foliage, this mountain dweller from South Africa fashions an alluring mound. Willowy stems elevate magenta blooms above a low, luminous mass of small, silver leaves and long, whitened trailing stalks. A sun-loving Geranium that thrives on warmth, little water and good drainage, Geranium harveyi is tailor-made for cascading over rocks and pots in exposed sites, or growing as a small-scale ground cover.
Size: 8" high x 2' wide; hardy to zone 8.
