Spread madly

I planted this in a border on top of a well drained lowish wall and it went mad, spreading over a huge area. I have redeployed it to a big pot of its own, and it is doing equally well there, even in semi shade. Best to give it a restricted space to grow in I reckon, unless you want it for the purpose of ground covering. Looks great.

Have tried orkney cherry several times in different locations but it never lives for more than a couple of years for me ( i have no trouble with other geraniums). It appears to be prone to winter wetness and needs a very well drained position. I always end up buying it again though as it flowers strongly over a long period and looks good against the black foliage. Grows to about 18 inches wide by 1foot tall.

A super geranium

This geranium is as perfect a plant as I could have wished for to hang over a stone wall in my garden. It flowered profusely until October with gorgeous little pink flowers.

I have grown this lovely geranium, with its attractive foliage, in my alpine bed and it has produced lovely pink flowers for many months. Slugs and snails ignore it which is always a bonus!

Will this grow in a heavy clay soil?

Hello, It prefers a relatively freely draining soil, but if your soil does not remain heavy and wet for any length of time, then you may get away with it.

Small and perfectly formed

One of the major players in our gardens is the hardy geranium with its gaping, saucer-shaped flowers heavily veined in order to guide the thirsty bee to the vital nectar and pollen. There are varieties galore and it’s quite possible to have hardy geranium
