Geranium nodosum ‘Clos du Coudray’

Geranium

Cranesbill

We’re talking about hardy Geraniums, not the better-known, anything-but-subtle Pelargo­ni­ums. True Geraniums are sturdy yet refined, with 5-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: many will rebloom after flowering if lightly trimmed and most die back in winter.

<i>Geranium nodosum</i> ‘Clos du Coudray’

Recently discovered in some of Normandy’s famed gardens, this European native bestows a steady supply of violet flowers with dark striations, pronounced light margins and deeply notched petal tips. Elongated shallow rhizomes spawn fine hummocks, shaped by lustrous green leaves, sporting 3 to 5 shallowly toothed lobes and warm russet tones as they mature. ‘Clos du Coudray’s valiant cold-hardy habit generates late season blooms, even under dry conditions, exhibits notable shade tolerance and enjoys well-drained soil.

Blooms June–October

Size: 15" high x 18" wide.

Zone 5/6.
