Geranium cantabrigiense St. Ola

<i>Geranium</i> x <i>cantabrigiense</i> ‘St. Ola’

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.

An excellent choice for the north side of the house, this robust new hybrid between Geranium dalmaticum ‘Album’ and Geranium macrorrhizum ‘Album’ is similar to Geranium ‘Biokovo’ but much more vigorous, forming a lush and leafy evergreen carpet. ‘St. Ola’s white overlapping flower petals fade with just a hint of pink and create a pearly carpet beneath Hydrangea ‘Snowflake’.

Blooms May–September.

Size: 8" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Current Staff’s Favorite Plant

staff favorite plant

Our favorite plant this week: We love Geranium 'Bevan's Variety' for it's deer tolerant and stalwart habit, which sports richly colored, long blooming summer flowers. Named for the thick fleshy rhizomes by which it spreads, ‘Bevan’s Variety’ is one of the best ground cover plants for shady areas. Flourishing year after year in our older border with early flowering Brunnera and Euphorbia ‘Great Dixter’. Bearing clusters of intensely colored dark magenta flowers and decorative deep red sepals above soft green aromatic foliage.
