Geranium endressii

Cranesbill Geranium

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.230.060

The Border selections of Cranesbill Geranium are valuable fillers for colour in the perennial garden. This species, also known as Endres cranesbill or French crane’s-bill, is native to France and Spain. When people think about hardy geraniums, they probably envision this one. The plant forms a mound of glossy, deeply-cut, green foliage, bearing a summer-long display of cup-shaped, bright pink flowers. Plants need to be cut back hard in midsummer to encourage fresh new foliage. Easily divided in spring or fall. One of the best choices for massed plantings, filling in quickly to create a bushy groundcover. Evergreen in mild winter regions.
