Dwarf Cranesbill
Geranium × cantabrigiense ‘Cambridge’

Print Plant


There are a large number of Cranesbill Geraniums now available to gardeners. This is a low-growing hybrid, originally bred at Cambridge University. Plants form a low, spreading mat of fragrant dark green leaves, bearing clusters of bright magenta-pink flowers. The very long blooming period sets this apart from others, and makes it especially useful as a low groundcover or edging plant. Also worth considering in tubs or mixed containers. Fairly drought tolerant, once established. Easily divided in spring or early fall. Evergreen.
