Geranium pratense ‘Hocus Pocus’

Meadow Cranesbill

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.230.720

The perennial Cranesbills include a number of plants that are excellent for massing in the border or woodland garden. This compact selection forms a mound of deeply cut bronzy-purple leaves, bearing showy clusters of single lavender-purple flowers in early summer. Trim back to 4 inches after blooming, to rejuvenate the foliage. Easily divided in spring or fall. Better vigour than most other dark leaved forms on the market.
