Geranium pratense ‘Midnight Blues’

Meadow Cranesbill

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.229.590

A unique form of Meadow Cranesbill, this forms a low mound of glossy purple-black leaves that hold their colour well through the whole season. Flowers are cup-shaped, violet-blue and held in loose sprays overtop of the foliage. The perfect size for a border edging, in the rock garden or in mixed containers. Plants may benefit from a hard trim back after flowering is over, to rejuvenate the leaves. A superior vegetative clone selected from the ‘Midnight Reiter’ strain in France by Thierry Delabroye. USPPP: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
