Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral coriaceous On Nov 10, 2014, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

One of the most frequently planted of geranium species, at least in British gardens. Makes a good groundcover.

The Royal Horticultural Society has granted this cultivar its coveted Award of Garden Merit (AGM).

This begins to bloom in early summer. Bloom may continue all summer in cool summer climates, but in the US southeast bloom stops in June. Benefits from a hard summer cutback if it starts looking unkempt---regrowth is fast if moisture is consistent.

Spreads slowly by rhizomes.

Armitage gives its hardiness range as 4-7 on the North American east coast. Needs afternoon shade in the southeast.

Self-sows, and hybridizes freely with several other common geranium species. This is one of the parents of G. x oxonianum.

Native to southern Europe and western Asia, and introduced to western gardens in 1812.
