Plant Type: Perennials

2008 Perennial of the Year! Huge, glowing violet blue, saucer-shaped flowers with distinctive white eyes and reddish-purple veining are held above mounds of deep green foliage that is slightly marbled with chartreuse. This is an amazingly free-flowering cultivar; it keeps the blooms coming from late spring into mid-fall. In one season, one vigorous plant will cover a 2-3 sq.foot area. It looks especially nice when complimented by yellow or chartreuse flowers or foliage.

 


Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Cranesbill is generally quite adaptable to a variety of growing conditions. Though it prefers moist, well-drained soil, it will also tolerate periods of drought once established. Cranesbill will grow in full sun or part shade. In too much shade, however, its habit will be less compact and fewer flowers will be produced. Geraniums are generally considered pest free. They require little care once established, but may be divided every 3-4 years. If the foliage begins to look raggedy by late summer, simply trim it back. A new flush of foliage will quickly take its place.+ Start dry until growth starts then keep moist.
