Geraniums

Search Geraniums
The true Geranium is just that i.e. its genus is botanically, correctly called Geranium. It's rather more flamboyant Pelargonium cousin often masquerades as a Geranium whereas it is botanically, correctly called Pelargonium. All a bit confusing even to those who study these things.

The true Geranium is quite a hardy perennial that fits well in the perennial border or wild flower gardens. The lobed leaves can be evergreen or perennial and are held on fine stalks. Often the foliage is highly aromatic. The sweet and simple flowers have 5 petals and come in tones of white, pink, purple or blue. Easy to grow in sun or light shade they are ideal for mass planting or for use as a pretty ground-cover. The common name 'Cranesbill' comes about from the shape of the seed head. It is also the interpretation of the botanical name; Gerano being the Greek for Crane.

Picture of Geranium Bertie Crug

CLICK TO ENLARGE..

A carpet of shiny, deep green leaves brushed with bronze provides wonderful contrast for the rose-pink flowers which begin to appear in early summer. The leaves are not deeply cut; rather they are relatively wide with rounded lobes which compliment the rounded shape of the flower petals. Standing only 4 inches tall, this cultivar acts as a weed-smothering groundcover in the garden.

Picture of Geranium Johnsons Blue

CLICK TO ENLARGE..

This cranesbill is smothered from mid-summer to autumn with lots of large, dark-veined, lavender-blue flowers that fade to pearl grey as they mature. It is an informal-looking, slightly sprawling plant that looks best allowed to make a dense patch of attractive ground cover with its masses of elegant divided leaves. A superb plant for a cottage garden or informal border. Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
