Common name: Cranesbill geranium, Hardy geranium
Geranium is a genus of annual, biennial, and perennial plants found throughout the temperate regions of the world. Flowers are typically 5 petaled and come in a range of colours in white, pink, purple and blue. The common name cranesbill comes from the beak like stigma that forms to disperse the seed (fruits). They are also sometimes referred to as hardy geraniums to separate them from Pelargonium – which were originally classified in the same genus.
Geranium ‘Sue Crug’ is a cross between G.procurrens and G lambertii. It forms a lovely mound of lush mid-green leaves. The gorgeous bright pink flowers with dark veins are produced abundantly throughout summer.
Plants are hardy and will grow in sun or semi-shade. Semi-shade is recommended in hot dry areas such as Hawke’s Bay- or keep well mulched and watered.
