Tough hardy Geranium, native to Europe, but quite popular in North American landscaping.
Regular mounds of fragrant dissected leaves, widely open large soft pink flowers (1.5"), flowers for only 2-2.5 weeks in May/June. Reddish fall color.
Groundcovering plant for full sun, half shade and virtually any soil, that is not waterlogged (tolerates clay, dry soils, sandy or rocky).
Average moisture to dry soil, grows fairly well in dry shade too. Hardy in zone 4 to 9.
It is often sold as 'Lancastriense'. Deer and rabbit resistant plant.
Very dependable perennial for edges, front of the perennial bed, edges of woodland gardens, rock gardens, big containers, roof gardens,...excellent filler and very good ground covering habit, can be used as single plant in small flower bed, in groups or in masses as groundcover.
Very adaptable plant that can be combined with many perennials, an excellent companion of popular daylilies (Hemerocallis) and bearded Iris (iris x barbata, Iris x germanica). It meets in bloom with late Paeonia, late blooming bearded Irises or Salvia nemorosa (Salvia x sylvestris hybrids).
Pot Size : square 3.5" x 4" deep perennial pot

I am redesigning my gardens the spring using Roy Dilbik's Know Maintenance Approach, and was excited to find this geranium, one of Roy's favorites, at US Perennials. For its size and shape, I believe it will bloom this season. I highly recommend this grower and will continue to purchase plants here!
