This perennial is semi-evergreen so it can lose some of its leaves in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose them all, but then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast growing
  • Flowering period: May to July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This early-flowering, dwarf geranium has small, deep pink flowers with maroon veins and centres and pretty, deeply cut, grey-green leaves. It looks particularly good planted en masse in a rock garden, or at the edge of a raised border, where its rather shy flowers can be appreciated. Provided it has good drainage, it will produce a mass of attractively veined pink flowers from late spring to early summer.

  • Garden care: In midsummer rejuvenate plants that are beginning to look jaded, by removing old flowered stems and leaves. Lift and divide large colonies in spring.
