Geranium-Hardy Geranium, Cranesbill

Propagating Geranium or Cranesbill, which is a totally different genus then the annual Geranium used in pots for Memorial Day, is done in the spring by digging up the rhizomes that form off of the parent plant. It prefers full to partial sun in either a clay or sandy soil, some acid, and will bloom for upwards of four weeks, deadheading and extra water will induce additional blooms so it could flower from May until August and its colors range from white, pink, blue, purple, maroon and is considered a groundcover since it only reaches a height of 6-12" and its foliage is scented and turns red in the fall and is deciduous. Deer could nibble.
