This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A compact, low-growing geranium that flowers continuously until autumn, this variety has pretty pale pink flowers with darker pink veins above dark green, deeply cut leaves. It is also drought tolerant once established. Try it in a rock garden, at the edge of a raised border, or as part of a cottage garden scheme.

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