Family - Geraniaceae

Geraniums come in many shapes, colours and sizes ranging from small rockery plants to bold groundcovers or tall perennial plants. They thrive in good garden soil in sun, part shade, or woodland gardens. Some even survive the toughest garden spot you can give them!! They bloom from spring to fall and many have evergreen leaves that turn brilliant colours in the fall extending the season further. In short, there is a Geranium for every part of your garden!!

Small Rockery

Charming petite Geraniums for full sun to partial shade. Great in the small garden, alpine rockery, in front of the perennial border and in containers.

Groundcover

Colourfu1, weed smothering and quick growing are the traits which make these mid-size Geraniums essential in the garden. Good performers in all type of garden settings, even under trees.

Woodland

In the shady part of the garden these Geraniums are outstanding. They do well under trees where few perennials prosper. Landscape companions are Hosta, Ferns, Carex, Viola & Helleborus.

Perennial Border

Showy blooms (even repeat flowering), great foliage colour & texture make these mid to large Geraniums a must in the border or where you wish in sun to part shade.
