Geranium × cantabrigiense ‘Crystal Rose’

Dwarf Cranesbill

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.229.080

There are a large number of Cranesbill Geraniums now available to gardeners. This selection forms a low, spreading, compact mat of fragrant, dark-green leaves, bearing clusters of long-lasting, bright magenta-pink flowers, late spring through late summer. Foliage develops an orange tint in fall with the onset of cooler temperatures. Excellent container plant, as a groundcover, in the rock garden and for edging. Fairly drought-tolerant, once established. Very easy to grow and tolerates a wide range of conditions. Easily divided in spring or early fall. USPP#20809: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
