|Popular, hardy Geraniums have multitudes of long-blooming, intensely colored flowers and dense mounds of lobed leaves. Excellent border, rock garden or woodland plants. The common name of the Cranesbill refers to the beaklike fruit. See Pelargonium for the showier indoor/outdoor plants most commonly known as geraniums. Most thrive in full or partial sun, and plants often remain evergreen. Protect plants in warmer climates from hot afternoon sun. Most are grown by seed or division.
This tough ground cover has finely dissected leaves and magenta pink flowers that withstand sun and heat. Attractive in foliage where hardy, even at summer's end. Shear lightly after bloom. Cut back hard in early spring.
