Buy Geranium 'Light Dilys' cranesbill: Flowers non-stop for several months

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast growing
  • Flowering period: May to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Easy and undemanding, this compact cranesbill will nevertheless reward you with non-stop flowers from late spring to mid-autumn. It makes superb groundcover at the front of the border where it will mingle easily with its neighbours, without becoming too bossy. The foliage is attractive too.

  • Garden care: Carefully weed by hand as hoeing can break rhizomes, which are very close to the surface. Lift and divide large colonies in spring.
