Geranium hybrid with small blue flowers in late spring and early summer. Great filling plant for flower bed.
Awarded by Royal Horticultural Society by Award of Garden Merit in 2004.
Quite large, sprawling clumps, reaching 23" of height x 23-35" of width. Finely divided dark green leaves.
Somewhat ground covering growth. May be cut back after firsts flush of blooms to encourage new leaf growth (which usually leads to second flush of flowers in the fall).
Full sun (in cooler areas), half sun, half shade, average soil to loamy, with average drainage. Soil should be medium to medium-moist. Likes some moisture, but don't plant in waterlogged soils. In hot and dry periods needs watering. So it may not be the best plant for hot deep south and we expect it will perform better in northern states or north-eastern coastal areas.
Suitable for zones 5 to 7.
Deer and rabbit resistant, black walnut tolerant.
Hybrid of Geranium clarkei and Geranium pratense. Goes well with many common perennials and grasses for sun. Looks also very well in half shaded woodland edges.
