Plant details

A North American geranium which stands up rather than flopping, and has clusters of white centred, pale to dark pink flowers. They open in late spring, and again in summer, and with luck even in the autumn. Make sure that is in damp soil, possibly near a natural stream, in a prominent position. 'Beth Chatto' and 'Espresso' are excellent alternatives, both of which have been given the Award of Garden Merit (AGM) by the Royal Horticultural Society.
