Plant swathes of this gorgeous mauve-pink geranium in your cottage garden borders and enjoy dreamy summer skies all summer long. The double blooms of Geranium pratense 'Summer Skies' may look delicate but this hardy herbaceous perennial is tough and undemanding. Unlike its single flowered relations, this meadow cranesbill does not self seed, so the flowers last even longer. Height: 90cm (36"). Spread: 60cm (24").
Vigorous and versatile, this superb cranesbill tolerates almost any situation; even full shade. A mass of double purple-pink blooms stand above the delicately serrated foliage which turns to shades of burnt red and orange in autumn. Geranium himalayense 'Birch Double' will quickly blend with other herbaceous perennials to create colourful groundcover and looks equally attractive in herbaceous borders and shady woodland gardens. Height: 25cm (10"). Spread: 60cm (24").
Long lasting, weather resistant, double white flowers are produced from June onwards on upright, downy stems. The serrated leaves quickly create a mound of fresh green foliage that makes excellent groundcover for a cottage garden or perennial border. Unlike its single flowered relations, Geranium pratense 'Laura' does not self seed, making it easier to control. Height and spread: 60cm (24").
