Pleasant light pink flowers with pronounced sepals on strong stems. Macrorrhizum are more drought tolerant than other Cranesbills. The semi-evergreen aromatic leaves of Geranium Ingwersen's Variety are tinted bronze-red in fall and foliage can be dried for potpourri. Clusters of crimson-red, berrylike seedheads remain after the flower petals fall away. Can be used as a well behaved groundcover - very nice at the base of Clematis. A Garden of Merit award winner.

Geranium General Information

Perennial Geranium are always a favorite for its excellent mounding habit and late spring to summer bloom time. Lovely foliage complements the flowers well. Many of the flowers exhibit interesting veining. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Geranium Plant Care

Prefers well-drained soil. Snip off spent flowering stems at the base or shear tops back to new growth to stimulate rebloom and freshen foliage. Generally does not need division but can be divided in spring or fall if desired.
