Geranium cinereum ‘Splendens’


Dwarf Cranesbill

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.230.500


The hardy Cranesbill Geraniums include a number of varieties best suited to the rock garden or for edging, in well-drained sunny sites. This selection forms a dense, low mat of grey-green leaves. Hot magenta-pink flowers have a contrasting black centre, and rest on the trailing stems in late spring, then appear on and off through the summer. Nice also in alpine troughs or mixed containers. Clip plants lightly after flowering is over, to promote bushy growth from the middle. Easily divided in early spring.
