This hardy geranium cultivar is a clump-forming perennial which forms a spreading mound of foliage that typically grows 6-8" tall and spreads to 18-24" wide.  Features 5-petaled, pale pink flowers with dark pink lines on the petals and small, deeply-lobed,dark green leaves.  Primarily blooms in May and June with a sparser bloom occurring throughout the summer.  Foliage often turns attractive shades of red in autumn.

Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Tolerates some drought, but prefers and spreads best in moist, humusy soils with good drainage. Deadheading is tedious for larger plantings and probably unnecessary. Side stems maybe removed at any time to control spread. If not deadheaded, some self-seeding may occur in ideal growing conditions. Foliage may decline after flowering in hot summer climates, at which point it may be lightly sheared back and shaped to revitalize.
