Buy Geranium macrorrhizum 'Bevan's Variety' Balkan cranesbill: Magenta flowers. Perfect for suppressing weeds

This perennial is semi-evergreen so it can lose some of its leaves in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose them all, but then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

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

    Clusters of small, saucer shaped, crimson-purple flowers are held on slender stems above strong aromatic, light green leaves from May to September. This is one of the most versatile and useful geraniums, as it will even thrive in dry shade. The deeply cut, semi-evergreen foliage also spreads quickly to form low hummocks that suppress weeds for most of the year. It looks lovely with strongly shaped perennials, such as bergenia, or polemonium, or planted en masse under trees, and is also valuable for hiding the foliage of spring bulbs as they die down. The leaves often turn red in autumn, too.

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

Fantastic low-maintenance geranium


I bought these geraniums to fill a difficult area of dry shade under some trees and I under planted them with tall daffodils. They have filled out beautifully and provided attractive year-round ground cover and weed suppression. If you're planting in a dry area, keep them well-watered until they become established. They are an easy zero-maintenance plant and they disguise faded daffodil leaves perfectly and help brighten up a dull bit of garden.
