This is a compact geranium which makes great groundcover. In summer it is covered with masses of lilac-pink flowers with a dark magenta veined eye. These are held above the soft velvety foliage on on lightly branched stems. An excellent plant for softening the edges of a mixed border, it copes well in full sun or partial shade.

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