Product Description

 

A very attractive, dry shade tolerant plant which will flower all summer and autumn.  The trumpet shaped lilac-pink flowers are held clear of glossy semi-evergreen foliage.  This cranesbill seeds about quite happily once established and is now considered a naturalised native.  This simply has to be the best shade-loving geranium, quickly making ground cover, even in drought conditions. Utterly reliable. G.nodosum is very easy to manage.  Remove old overwintered leaves in spring, tidying up any damaged by winter weather.  Propagate by division in spring or collect and sow seed.  Pest and disease resistant.
