Geranium cinereum ‘Ballerina’


Dwarf Cranesbill

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.230.110


There are a large number of Cranesbill Geraniums now available to gardeners. This low-growing selection forms a trailing mat of grey-green leaves. The soft-pink flowers have a deep purple eye and veins, appearing on and off from early summer. Terrific in the rock garden, alpine trough, wall or for edging a border or pathway. Shear plants by half in midsummer if flowering stops, to encourage bushy growth and repeat blooming in autumn. Easily divided in spring. Received a Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit (1993/2006).
