Geranium ‘Orion’

Cranesbill Geranium

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.229.500

One of several modern long-blooming hybrid Cranesbill, a huge improvement on the older types. This forms a sprawling mound of deeply cut leaves, holding clusters of deep violet-purple cup-shaped blooms beginning in early summer and continuing for weeks. Clip back to 6 inches in midsummer if flowering stops. Clumps are easily divided in the spring. Excellent for massing or using near the border edge, also in containers.
