Absolute rock hardy jewel from Lebanon and Syria. This is perfect for our area as it is winter growing and summer dormant so can take our dry summers. Blooms in late spring with lots of lavender-blue flowers on stems up to 18" and after flowering it disappears until Fall. Not often available.
A white flowered variant of this familiar Geranium whose flowers are backed by a green calyx rather than pink which adds to its overall indispensable lightness of being. The paler than normal green leaves accentuate this and makes this valuable for brightening a somber corner or tempering hotter colors. Takes dry shade - very tough.
We acquired this incredibly tough, tuberous, summer dormant Geranium in the 80's from East Lambrook in southern England which was home to Margery Fish and the original English Cottage Garden. Provenance alone is merit enough but good lavender blue flowers and drought tolerance carries the day.
This is a tough little groundcover Geranium that spreads by underground rhizomes forming little "bulbs" along the way. Very nice foliage with good marbled patterns and bright purely pink flowers are such a pleasure that it's peregrinations into its neighbors are forgiven. Cheerfully tough.
A generally accepted species name by most authorities although Flora of China has this merged into Geranium donianum. Now that the legal disclaimers and paperwork has been taken of, this is a little sweety we got from Carla Lankow who grew this in her partly sunny scree garden. Gently creeping and low with comparatively large pink flowers.
