Easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Tolerates some drought, but prefers moist, humusy, well-drained soils, particularly in hot summer climates. Intolerant of the heat and humidity of the deep South. Cut back stems hard/shear plants down to new growth immediately after flowering to revitalize and encourage a possible light summer rebloom. If not cut back, plants tend to sprawl and become somewhat weedy in appearance.
This hardy geranium cultivar is a bushy, compact, clump-forming perennial which typically grows in a creeping mound to 15-18" tall with a similar spread. Features 5-petaled, clear pink flowers (to 1" diameter) with notched petals. Flowers bloom in late spring (May-June) in hot summer climates such as St. Louis, but may bloom throughout the summer in cooler northern climates. Sparse summer rebloom may occur in St. Louis if plants are cut back hard after flowering. Palmate, deeply lobed, medium green leaves (2-3" across).
No serious insect or disease problems.
Borders, rock gardens, cottage gardens or wild gardens. Small area ground cover.
