This lovely geranium is extremely vigorous and long flowering. It soon forms hummocks of distinctly veined deeply divided evergreen foliage smothered with funnel shaped bright salmon-pink flowers from May to October. It can be thuggish but given space is a useful groundcover plant for a cottage garden or herbaceous border. It self-seeds freely too.

  • 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
